Devyne Stephens, Chairman and Founder of UpFront Megatainment Worldwide, presented a generous gift to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta during Stephens’ Annual Christmas Gala, Puttin’ on the Ritz: The Top Hat Affair. Closing out the $43 million capital campaign needed by the end of this year for the revitalization of Children’s at Hughes Spalding, his $300,000 donation is just the first of a variety of contributions he plans to make.
During the red carpet event, Stephens also announced the launch of a year-long campaign to raise money and awareness for Children’s at Hughes Spalding through the hospital’s collaboration with DeVyne Intervention, Stephens’ newly created non-profit foundation.
“Helping to make the Children’s at Hughes Spalding dream a reality means the world to me,” emphasized Stephens. “I’ve always been a strong believer in investing in the future, and the future is our children. I’m extremely honored to be collaborating with Children’s at Hughes Spalding and to officially launch DeVyne Intervention around such a worthy cause. I look forward to the months ahead and working with the Children’s team.”
