Kendall Toole Receives CARE Award In Hollywood
Kendall Toole, 18, of Valencia, will be among the 2011 recipients of the CARE (Child Actor Recognition Event) Award from the BizParentz Foundation, April 30 at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Billed as a kind of "anti-child-star-gone-bad" event, CARE honors over 150 of the industry's brightest young stars for their positive contributions to the entertainment industry. To be eligible for a CARE Award, young performers must work professionally in 2010, demonstrate good academics, community service, union membership, acting study, and more. Their parents must even take a quiz on their business knowledge of the entertainment industry.
Kendall appeared in the critically acclaimed play FORGIVENESS (written by David Schulner; directed by Matt Shakman with casting by Liz Dean). She is a 2010 graduate of the California Virtual Academy, completing her diploma in just three years with a 4.0 (unweighted) grade point average GPA and earning valedictorian honors. Kendall volunteers regularly at St Charles Catholic Church as a confirmation leader, for the Children's Hunger Fund, LA Mission and the School on Wheels. Kendall will attend the University of Southern California this fall. Kendall says, "Bizparentz has been a vital resource for not only my parents, but also myself. Knowing that, as a young actor, I have the support of the foundation has been such an asset to my career. By recognizing young actors for their professional and, more importantly, personal growth, the Bizparentz Foundation helps break the often negative label of "child-actor." I truly appreciate their endless efforts to showcase fantastic opportunities and experiences that come with growing up in the entertainment industry."
The CARE Awards are presented by BizParentz Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to education, advocacy and charitable support to parents and children engaged in the entertainment industry.
