DBLTV Hosts 2nd Annual Back to School Give Back Event for Los Angeles Youth
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2017 : On August 13, 2017, DBL Tycoon Vision held its second annual Back to School Give Back Event. Expanding on 2016's inaugural event, the 2017 edition lifted the spirits of local children while easing the burden on parents preparing for the new school year, which began August 21, 2017 for the Inglewood School District.The atmosphere surrounding DBLTV's event was one of family, achievement, and community, as families fellowshipped over food and music. Several community figures attended, including Inglewood District 2 Councilman Alex Padilla, Planning Commissioner David Rise, and Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson.
Over 200 backpacks filled with school supplies were given out to students ranging from Pre-K to 12th Grade. Clarkson, who received a Special Commendation Award from the city of Inglewood while in attendance, donated more than 100 of these backpacks. Owner and operator of DBL Tycoon Vision, Mr. President Marks, who is a barber by trade, also partnered with professional barbers and hairstylists to supply students with free haircuts and hairstyles onsite.
As the second annual Back to School Give Back Event came to a close, Mr. Marks expressed his excitement with the event's turnout: "It's such a blessing to pour into the hearts of the young scholars of tomorrow. Every child here today took away an increase in self-esteem through haircuts and school supplies to succeed for the new school year."
DBLTV is proud to be a beacon in the community and promises to continue delivering guidance to the youth. Mr. President Marks is slated to release two new books before the year ends, his much-anticipated financial literacy guide, Gain the American Dream, as well as a children's book, Family Values from A-Z. Be sure to look out for DBLTV's next event, the City of Champions Drawing Contest, which will take place on January 28, 2018.
