**UPDATE 6/27/08** Hey folks, I’ve been promising info on Paige Hurd and here’s some info regarding her upcoming Sweet 16 parties. I will still be posting a story from my interview very, very, very soon (for real). Kudos to Paige for channeling her success and milestone birthday to raise funds for childhood cancer charities.

Paige Hurd Make A Wish Celebrity teen actress Paige Hurd (from the CW TV Show “Everybody Hates Chris” and the hit film “Beauty Shop”) is having a Sweet 16 Birthday Party on Saturday July 19, 2008 in Los Angeles, California at a Private Loft off Sunset Blvd. During her party planning Paige decided she wants people to donate to charity instead of bringing her a gift on her most special day of her life so far. Paige is using her birthday party to raise funds for children’s cancer by having a raffle at her party. 100% of the profits from the raffle will be donated to charity. The raffle tickets can be purchased online (via http://paigehurdsweet16.blogspot.com) and at the party itself. The best thing about the raffle is ticket holders will not have to be present to win. Sixteen (16) items will be raffled off at the Sweet 16 party. Two Pre-parties will be held on July 9th and 16th in Woodland Hills, CA where each person who attends the party automatically gets a raffle ticket upon paid entry. Additionally, anyone who buys a raffle ticket by July 16th will be entered into a special drawing where 16 people will be randomly chosen to attend Paige’s invite only party as her VIP guest, walk the red carpet and hang out with the selfless teenager during her spectacular party!

What Inspired Paige to Do This?
Paige and Pierce Paige’s youngest brother Pierce (6 years old) has both cancer and Down syndrome (Paige is one of 5 children). Additionally, Paige was touched by Brittiana Henderson who lost her battle to cancer in 2007 at the age of 13. Paige is actively involved in the community and lends her hands to many events that benefit finding a cure for cancer. As a result of her concern for children with cancer, Paige decided that at her Sweet 16 Birthday Party she didn’t want the party to be about her, but rather a vehicle where she could bring attention to the help children need to battle cancer. She has since asked that her family and friends to donate to charity opposed to bringing her gifts. Thus, the main focus of her party is the Charity Raffle where 100% of the profits from raffle ticket sales will be donated to childhood cancer foundations.

Brotherhood Entertainment will hold 2 pre-Sweet 16 Party events that will directly benefit Paige’s cause on July 9th and July 16th for ALL AGES (no alcohol served) located at the Oxygen Lounge 19550 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana CA 91356 from 8:30pm-1am. Not only will the pre-event party goers enjoy live performances, but the entry fee buys them a raffle ticket as well. So everyone who pays to get in has automatically donated to charity, gets a raffle ticket and can win one of the 16 prizes that will be raffled off at the Sweet 16 event on July 19th. The best thing is you do not have to be present to win, so anyone anywhere can buy a raffle ticket and support the cause and possible win a raffle item. Paige’s Sweet 16 is a private, invite only red carpet event. Sixteen lucky people who have bought raffle tickets by 11pm on July 16th will be will be chosen from a special drawing (July 17th) to attend the Sweet 16 party, be Paige’s VIP guest, walk the red carpet and party like a star.

Comments

  1. this remind’s me of that VH1 show “My super sweet-sixteen”, except with a better vibe. the girls and guys on that show were just stuck up rich kids.

  2. pretty much, it is reminiscent of MTV’s My Super Sweet 16, except she’s incorporating a charitable cause. that is honorable. at the same time, i can’t imagine that absolutely nobody is giving her a gift.

    my sweet sixteen birthday was 5 friends at a pizza hut in columbia, md. i remember seeing my first shooting star in the sky that night and thinking it was some cosmic sign of things to come. that was about as exciting as it got. if only…

  3. in real life says:

    she is just doing this to become noticed more. i know her and in real life she is a ghetto, back talking, annoying, stuck up bitch

  4. i think she’s a very good actor & very pretty and “in real life” you need to stop hating n get a effin life jeolousy is not a good thing

  5. She is really awful in real life and so is her mom cheryl. She is a snake and will step over anyone to get what she wants. They are wanna-bees. Karma is a Bi^%!….thats why Pierece is like that

  6. omg, , yu guys are soo mean. . she might be ghetto but shes not really stuck up or a b*t*h . . .shes actually pretty nice. .stop hatin foofers

  7. paigehurd says:

  8. tru dat!

  9. Yes honey, use the fake Christian thing. I know you, I know the way you talk and act, I know how you treat others, I know how your mom treats others. So, please, don’t use that b.s on me!

  10. earthly_wind says:

  17. I think you are all assholes! Why are you talking about that lil girl like that. I dont know her and I only watch the show but to talk shit about her mother is awful and to talk about that baby and say that is why he has cancer and downsyndrome is so hurtful and mean. May God have mercy on your souls thats awful.

  18. You people are sooooooooo mean! How can u even talk bout her like that and talkin all this stuff bout her family. U dont even know why little pierce has cancer and down syndrome. U probably dont even know any of her family. She dont talk bout ur family so u shouldnt talk bout her

    -Lisa, age 10
    ( BTW: She is not stuck up or back talkin……. I watch her vids on youtube and she does not fall into any of those categories , she is down 2 earth, nice caring and fun)(unlike any of u haterz u mean snobs)

  19. Having interviewed Paige on my blog and covering several stories about her, I found what I know of Paige to be very kind and positive. I’m not sure why so many of you have such strong/negative opinions about her. No need to get mean and personal either. Let’s show some respect!

  20. hey paige stay positive dont listen to the haters ,you are beaautiful and a very good actress and im sorry about your brother I wish i had a cure .I just lost my son on 9/24/09 because of a hospital mistake,andhe was only 7months and he was also sick not wth cancer though.if you ever need someone to talk to Paige I Will be here for you.

  21. hey paige did you get my comment I wanted to know if you wanted i could give you my email etc… I would like to be there for you and I COULD BE LIKE A BIG SISTER TO YOU IF YOU WANT .I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR GOING THROUGH .KEEP YOUR HEAD UP BEAUTIFUL.
