We worked hard to help our friend organize a charity basketball for her charity called called Angels in Fur. Getting an event like this together is VERY HARD WORK!

Once you have a charity you want to raise money for,
You need to:
1. Get a place big enough to have your event. It has to be safe, wheelchair accessible and and nice. Only outdoors if it won’t be too hot or won’t rain.
2. Get celebrities to commit to come. Most can’t promise so you get permission to use their name and picture and say “celebrity guests subject to change”
3. Get sponsors to donate gifts for gift bags for the celebs, raffle items, auction items (Things like signed cast photos, gift certificates for places, tickets to amusement parks are great) and food and drinks for guests and volunteers.
4. sell tickets to your event
5. have lots of security and volunteers.
6 have wristbands for different groups Volunteers, celebs, VIPs, friends family of the VIP’s, press, general admission. EVERYONE should have a wristband!!!
7. have lots of meetings so everyone knows how to help before and at the event.
8 advertise your event on Twitter, make flyers, get the local news to talk about it.
9 get press to your event and get a red carpet.
10 Have fun!!
We had fun at our event.
Some cool stars came

Meeting Matthew “MDot” Finley

Matthew “MDot” Finley is best known for playing Luke Williams in Camp Rock 2. Luke is at Camp Star which is a rival camp trying to take campers and counselors way from Camp Rock. Luke sings “Fire” when we first meet him in the movie and at the end of the movie he sings a duet with Meaghan Martin called “Tear it Down”.

MDot is what is known as a triple threat. He’s an awesome dancer, actor and singer AND he plays 5 instruments: piano, drums, bass, guitar, and saxophone! What you may not know about him, what you won’t find on Wikipedia is he is a really nice guy! I have met MDot 3 times! He has always been a sweet, gentle man. He has been kind to me and my mom in person and on Twitter! He really is humble and knows that without his fans, he doesn’t have a career!

MDot is 23 years old . He is super talented and won an award called the Urban Threshold Music Award in 2007 but deserves to win more. He is currently working on an album that he says will be “The best R&B/Pop album without a Parental Advisory sticker on it”.

I first met him at Debby Ryan’s 16 Wishes Premiere. He was waiting to get on the red carpet. Someone asked if we got a picture with him. We didn’t recognize him because Camp Rock 2 hadn’t come out yet. The person asking said, “Go meet him, He’s gonna be huge!” So we went to say “hi” and got a quick pic! He had a great smile and was super friendly!

In September , we went to the Road Dogs Game. Mdot was sitting in the stands taking pictures and giving fans autographs. At one point, he left his seat. He was followed by fans who wanted pics. That’s when we took the pic above. We also got an autograph! Security gave him a hard time accusing him of creating a disturbance because a lot of fans were standing around in a big group. He was almost kicked out of Blair Field! He kept having to explain that he was only trying to hang out with fans. My mom kept her camera on everything in case we needed proof that Mdot wasn’t doing anything wrong. We thought the security weren’t really being respectful but Mdot was a gentleman and kept his cool the whole time. Finally, someone from the team came out just as Matthew was being taken off the property!

That night, he took the stage at the Verizon Ampitheatre In Irvine as part of the Camp Rock 2/Demi Lovato/Jonas Brothers Concert. He was awesome and with front row seats were really able to enjoy his performance.

We next met him at a charity event in Hollywood. We first saw him in the parking lot on his way in. He recognized us from The Road Dogs Game and hung out with us a bit! He had a little Mickey Mouse in his pocket.When we tweeted the picture below, he tweeted something right back about me like ” I love this little girl”. I got a bunch of followers that night!

We’ve met a lot of stars, most are nice but MDot really stands out as one of our all time favorites!!!

I ask you to support this great guy .

1. Request “Fire” on Radio Disney

2. Look for his songs, singles and album- Nice to Meet You, A Million

3. Follow Mdot on Twitter @4MDot

He is such a nice guy and a real gentleman! I am looking forward to seeing his career take off!
