Robi Reed’s Sunshine Beyond Summer: A Day Party With a Purpose #Reed4HopeAug 27, 2013
After casting more than one hundred movie and television projects over three decades, featuring several theatrical blockbusters, and presenting some of Hollywood’s biggest names, talent executive, philanthropist and S.T.A.R. Foundation’s 2013 “Woman of Power” Honoree … Robi Reed’s most beloved and perhaps most compassionately acclaimed work is a lesser known yearly production called, Sunshine Beyond Summer – The Day Party With A Purpose.
This affair is strategically set in the private gardens of a select supporting benefactor each year. Robi brings together an ensemble cast of close friends, associates, and peers to have a delightfully good time in the spirit of serving the community. Though Oscar winners like Denzel Washington and Angela Bassett have played recurring roles over the past ten years in the celebration, Reed’s eye for talent in “The Sunshine” has been more about discovering and inspiring big hearts than big names.
At this event, she directs an effort to raise funds for her newly created Reed For Hope Foundation, which raises awareness for life threatening disease prevention like HIV, supports women’s and children’s health initiatives, and makes the world a healthier place.
The event started 11 years ago as an intimate gathering of friends coming together for an end of summer barbecue. Today, the event has morphed beyond those humble beginnings into the premier event of the summer.
Audiences know Wendy Raquel Robinson as the sexy and feisty sports manager ‘Tasha Mack’ on BET’s #1 rated scripted series, The Game. This groundbreaking role has earned her NAACP Image Award nominations for “Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series” as well as nominations for “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.”
Robinson’s artistic background in acting, dancing, directing, writing, producing and choreographing displays her passion as she strives for excellence in her career as an artist. Robinson has received many accolades for her work in the Los Angeles community. When not working on set, she focuses her attention on youth and the performing arts at her conservatory, Amazing Grace Conservatory.
In addition, she served as Celebrity Spokesperson for the Los Angeles Black Business Expo & Trade Show; is the recipient of various honors which include the recipient of the Black Women’s Network (Atlanta), Jenesse Center Silver Rose for her work in nurturing young people in the performing arts; Howard University Distinguished Alumni Award, Disneyland, KJLH 102.3 FM Proven Achiever Award, and is a coveted Woman of Courage honoree. Wendy Raquel Robinson is no doubt, one of Hollywood’s busiest actors in the entertainment industry, and the sky is the limit…the boundaries are infinite. www.wendyraquel.com
