Jeff @ Project Rise, August 7, 2008

International recording artist Jeff Timmons, known as the founding member of the multi-platinum selling group 98 Degrees will join local recording artist Louie Bello, Producer Malik Williams, and Jeff Kalligheri of Dolce Vita Productions on Thursday, August 7, 2008 at 11:30 AM at Project RISE in Braintree.

Project RISE is six-week academic and cultural enrichment camp and was started by former NBA guard and Dorchester native Rob Dixon back in 1991 after retiring from professional basketball.

"I am honored to have Jeff and Louie see the value behind the great work we are doing here at Project RISE and have them spend some time with the kids.

As a former professional athlete myself, I know the positive impact those who are in the public eye and have made positive life choices can have on our youth.

Kids aspire to achieve the accomplishments that both Jeff and Louie have had in their careers and their coming here will be a true highlight in all of these children's lives and have a major impact. It is just as important to have folks like Malik and Jeff join us as it gives the kids exposure to the business side of the music world", said Rob Dixon, Executive Director of Project RISE.
