Foster kids will have good role models with Kids In The Spotlight (KITS).

The non-profit organization recently held a fundraiser in Hollywood, Calif. to raise money and awareness to give underserved youth in the foster care system the opportunity to create their own short films. The charity provides equipment, assistance and mentorship for future writers, stars and directors. The annual short film showcase will take place later this year.

Some of the attendees to this past weekend’s charity fundraiser included Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”), Niecy Nash (“Claws”), Sherri Shepherd (“Trial & Error”), Essence Atkins (“Marlon”), Bresha Webb (“Marlon”), RJ Mitte (“Breaking Bad”), Kellee Stewart (“Midnight, Texas”), Mo McRae (The First Purge), Kelsey Scott (“How to Get Away with Murder”),  Amirah Vanh (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Gabrielle Dennis (“Luke Cage”‘), A.J. Johnson (“The Jellies”), Emma Hunton (“Good Trouble”), Zuri Adele (“Good Trouble”), Caitlin O’Connor (“Key & Peele”), Sean Michael Murray (Evaride) and Hayden Maringer (Evaride).

LRM Online caught up with some of the celebrities who were there for the cause.
