Both Ferrell and Smith were robbed of their own quinceaneras. So, together with the Funny Or Die team, they’ve decided to right past wrongs by throwing their own coming-of-age bash and everyone is invited. The “Red Hot Benefit Comedy, Music + Quinceanera” premieres April 29 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Beneficiaries include Cancer for College and Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
Cancer for College is a charity started by Ferrell’s USC fraternity brother Craig Pollard who is a two-time cancer survivor and double amputee. The foundation has granted over $2 million in scholarships to over 1,000 cancer survivors.
Silverlake Conservatory of Music is a non-profit addressing the decrease in arts education. The Conservatory offers private music lessons at a reasonable cost and grants scholarships to children in need, providing free lessons and instruments.
Btw, you may remember this from the first announcement, “I have only one great regret in life and it’s that I never actually celebrated my quinceanera,” Ferrell said. “I’d like to think it was just a simple oversight by my mother, but there has been a void inside me for many years.”
