Give A Kid A Coat was established in 2012 in Dallas, TX. They have made it their mission to provide new winter coats to kids in need. The vision of ensuring every kid putting on a brand-new winter season coat, is healthy and balanced, able to attend school routinely, and has a strong self-esteem is why Give A Kid A Coat Foundation has a goal of serving at-risk children throughout the USA. Give a Kid a Coat has dispersed more than 5,000 winter coats from 2012 to 2015.
On Sunday, December 3rd at 2pm, we will celebrate this foundation with a benefit concert featuring The Walton Stout Band, Sir Earl Toon of Kool & The Gang and Vanilla Ice!
Lava Cantina has donated the facility, and we're looking for your support to raise awareness and maximize our fundraising for this wonderful cause!
Robert Matthew Van Winkle (born October 31, 1967), known professionally as Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, actor, and television host. Born in South Dallas, and raised in Texas and South Florida, Ice released his debut album, Hooked, in 1989 on Ichiban Records, before signing a contract with SBK Records, a record label of the EMI Group which released a reformatted version of the album under the title To the Extreme. Ice's 1990 single "Ice Ice Baby" was the first hip hop single to top the Billboard charts.
At the young age of just seventeen, Sir Earl Toon’s highly unique talents were discovered by Mr. Blackwell, a great individual. Together, the two worked hard to form their own production/publishing office, where they would then co-write and co-produce over forty hit songs together. After a few world tours as Kool & the Gang, Sir Earl began feeling the need for expansion. With his sights set firmly on producing, arranging, and writing music for Atlantic, Arista, and Polygram Records, Sir Earl began to truly flourish and spread his wings as elegantly as possible.
You think his skills lie just in music, though? That is where even some of his most devout fans would be wrong. Sir Earl was recently published in a cookbook, known as “A Musical Feast.” The cookbook features over 100 artists from across the world who contributed their own creative recipes in an effort to raise funds for the homeless. Some other entertainers in the book include Toni Braxton, Cher, and Whitney Houston.
Today, the celebration continues onward as Sir Earl Toon firmly sets his sights on more of the music industry. With his own production company in place, it is time to sign top quality singers, producers, and arrangers befitting the funky sound and style Sir Earl has become known for over the years. The future is bright, and there is enough room for style and lyrical genius to flow smoothly from all!
