*Jenesse Center is proud to announce Academy Award winning actor Jamie Foxx to join the Jenesse Silver Rose Weekend lineup. Foxx will open the show for the Silver Rose Gala on Sunday, April 18, at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.

Chaired by Academy Award winning actress Halle Berry, the event will benefit Jenesse Center families, a nonprofit organization that provides holistic, comprehensive programs to nurture families victimized by domestic violence back to a place of mental, financial, physical and emotional well being.

“I am so excited to welcome Jamie Foxx to participate in our 30th Anniversary Event,” said Berry. “This year marks a major celebration for Jenesse and all the good work that our sponsors and supporters have enabled us to accomplish for the women and children who rely on our help. We are ready to celebrate 30 years of service and raise lots of money so we can continue for 30 more years helping families to heal, grow and thrive.”

The theme for this year’s event is “In A Perfect World.” The weekend will shine with star power including live performances by Grammy Award winning recording artist Alicia Keys and multi-platinum recording artist Leona Lewis.

The Silver Rose Gala and Auction is the kick off event to the Silver Rose Weekend and will honor individuals and organizations that have effected positive change in their communities.
