Well this big event going down on Sunday night just be the move for YOU.?
The two created The Gifted Project, which is an event catered to the arts. There will be live music, live artists, vendors and several sponsors in the building at the event this weekend. Grant is excited and anxious to see everything come together.
"It's gonna be so so cool to see all these young people that are super duper talented from BR and surrounding areas come together and all have this one thing in common that we love the arts" said Grant.
"I feel like there aren't enough black people in the community who take time out to give back to the kids and nature the kids", said Carmouche. "That's the future so if we don't do it, who will?"
The Gifted Project is essentially a book drive to benefit the Baranco Clark YMCA after-school programs. It also serves as a fundraiser for scholars.
"We're also raising money for scholarships for high school students at McKinley High and Scotlandville High", said Grant.
"I feel like you can never have too many mentors or you can never have too many people reaching out to the communities", stated Grant.
The two decided to make The Gifted Project separate from YBG. They did not want to cater to just the black population and wanted to reach as many people as possible.
"There are a lot of minorities or even Caucasians that need advancements and opportunities", said Carmouche.
The event is Sunday from 4-8pm at Slash LA. Grant and Carmouche encourage to come out to what they say will be an "elaborate" event,
"Bring books, bring cash; it's a book drive and a scholarship fundraiser", said Carmouche. "We're getting everyone in the building to have a good time for a greater cause."
