Last night, the increasingly star-studded effort to improve education in Los Angeles got a boost from several members of the cast of “Les Miserables” and other Hollywood stars, who turned out for a party hosted by Vanity Fair to raise money for the LA Fund for Public Education.
Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, and director Tom Hooper were all there.
The Fund is an educational philanthropy founded by LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy and Megan Chernin, a co-founder of the education reform group LA’s Promise. The LA Fund most recently launched the Arts Matter campaign, and it has also pushed initiatives to give more LAUSD students breakfast and to stop bullying in schools.
