Manika recently attended the Lights. Camera Hollywood Dance-a-THON. For those who aren’t familiar this is an exciting charity event featuring a 6-hour dance party at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood. Proceeds benefit the Four Diamonds Fund and their fight against children’s cancer. The event raised $37,411.10 to fight childhood cancer. Please check out Manika’s Facebook Photo Album of the event.
Manika will be photographed shortly in support of the NOH8 campaign joining the likes of Adam Lambert and Miley Cyrus. For those who are unfamiliar, the NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8.
Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8” paintedon one cheek in protest.
I was recently a part of the Hollywood Christmas parade. I feel so fortunate to have been asked to be a part of it. For those in my hometown of Los Angeles, CA the special will be airing on KTLA on Sunday December 18th @ 6pm. It will be airing all over the country though so check below to see where you can tune in! If you don’t see your hometown don’t worry- we will be adding more broadcast dates soon!
If you’re in Las Vegas, come on down to 98.5 KLUC ‘s Annual Toy Drive, where I’ll be performing at 2:00pm. Such a good cause! If you can, please bring a toy or a bike to donate, so you can help a child have an amazing holiday! ♥ you all, see you soon 🙂
