John Ivey 'City Of Hope Roast' A Huge Success -- And The Roasting Continues
April 10, 2013 at 3:48 AM (PT)
The numbers are in! Last year, CITY OF HOPE-sponsored an event on NOVEMBER 7th at the HOUSE OF BLUES to 'roast' our dear friend JOHN IVEY. At the event, we were able to raise more than $100,000 on behalf of CITY OF HOPE. The entertainment industry and celebrity camaraderie was very exciting to be a part of.
At the end of that evening, there was a biographical reel presented and shown on JOHN IVEY's early childhood and long radio career.
Of particular interest is when a very young JOHN IVEY had more hair than was allowed by law, back when he was a screamin' night-time DJ, rock-shockin' dat mic! Please see it here.
Also, one of the video highlights is COLUMBIA EVP/GM JOEL KLAIMAN's roast to JOHN IVEY. It's priceless!!!
Much love and thanks for being a great sport, JOHN.
