Overbrook-native superstar Will Smith, son Jaden Smith, and actors Meagan Good, Nia Long and Tamala Jones are among celebrities expected at Charlie Mack's Party 4 Peace Celebrity Weekend on July 20-22.
Rev. Run of RUN-DMC, Camden-native actress Tasha Smith, actor/comedian Faizon Love, boxing champ Bernard Hopkins, Colts lineman Raheem Brock and recently departed Sixers player Lou Williams are also scheduled to take part in the weekend full of events, geared toward reducing violence in Philadelphia.
Charlie Mack Alston is a movie producer and longtime friend/bodyguard of Will Smith. In past years, he has taken some heat over not revealing how much money his charity weekend has raised or exactly what organizations it benefits, but the event will once again deliver a star-studded roster of programs the weekend after next.
Actor Tyrese Gibson, former Eagles QB Vince Young, rapper Lil Mama and singer Q Parker of 112 are also listed one of the fliers promoting the event, which warns "Celebrities subject to change."
