FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Scott L. Schwartz returned to Chicago to benefit Alicia’s House Food Pantry…

On September 7, 2012 Actor/Producer/Director Scott L. Schwartz returned to Chicago, IL to show his support for Alicia’s House Food Pantry for a week of fundraising events and appearances. Last year Scott helped Alicia’s House Food Pantry raise over $50,000. While Scott was in town he visited the children at Children’s Memorial Hospital. Scott is a essential part of the fundraising for Alicia’s House Food Pantry along with former Chicago Cubs pitcher Milt Pappas, and former Chicago Cubs catcher Randy Hundley. They started the week of fundraising with “Tip A Star” (celebrities serving for tips) at Aurelio’s Pizza (1372 Main St., Crete, IL 60417), a return visit to Children’s Memorial Hospital and Manteno Veterans Home on the 12th followed by The Egg & I on the 13th. The most popular on the agenda was the Celebrity Golf Outing on Saturday September 15th at Lincolnshire Country Club (390 East Richton Rd., Crete, IL), followed by dinner with the stars and the very popular silent auction that raised over $63,000 this year.

Scott L. Schwartz is widely known as the “Ultimate Bad Guy” from his acting career including: Ocean’s 11, 12 & 13, Starsky & Hutch, Spiderman, Fun With Dick And Jane, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Mentalist, Castle, among other feature films and TV shows. What most fans don’t know is that Scott is really “The Ultimate Nice Guy” and has been visiting children’s hospitals worldwide for the past 14 years after losing his sister to lung cancer in 1998. He realizes the value and impact of making a lasting impression on children with cancer and how important it is to make each child feel special. Scott enjoys visiting pediatric hospitals and bringing what joy he can into the lives of every child he visits. They are always smiling during his visits and usually begging him to return soon.

This year we’re proud to announce Scott was the recipient of the CHOC Glass Slipper Guild Award (a prestigious award that others like David Beckham, Gwen Stefani among others have received).

The Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation is making a difference in the lives of each child in need by continuing to visit hospitals worldwide, helping Alicia’s House Food Pantry, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), Toys For Tots Foundation, and various Children’s Hospitals worldwide.
