Felix Fooks sponsors Val Kilmer’s TwainMania Foundation Launch

Rodeo Realty’s Felix Fooks served as one of the event sponsors for actor Val Kilmer’s launch of TwainMania Foundation for Media Literacy.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif (June 7, 2019)- At a lavish estate in the hills of Bel Air, actor Val Kilmer launched his foundation TwainMania for Media Literacy. Rodeo Realty’s Felix Fooks served as one of the event sponsors for the non-profit event.

The event has already gone on to receive press attention with the Hollywood Reporter being on site for the private star-studded affair. In their exclusive interview they spoke on some of the event highlights which included “collecting donations directly…an art gallery where guests could bid on artwork created by Kilmer, some of which featured Doc Holiday, his iconic character from Tombstone. A film of his one-man show played in the mansion’s screening room and TVs throughout the house played clips from dozens of Kilmer’s famous film roles.”

Powered by the revolutionary new technology platform GVNG, the TwainMania Foundation was founded by Val Kilmer with the sole mission to use art and education as a means to inspire people from all walks of life on what it means to be an American, utilizing the legacy and lessons of prolific author Mark Twain.

“Mark Twain can teach people today by applying a critical thinking lens to problems in our society, and by always asking the tough and probing questions in order to make collective progress for America and our communities,” said Kilmer. “I believe Americans can be the best version of themselves by instituting the lessons and historical teachings of Twain.”

The concept of TwainMania Foundation was born out of HELMEL Studios, and in such will be teaming up with the creative arts space to offer art exhibits, installations, films, plays and performance pieces that promote social good as well as provide a place for community members to exhibit art.

Working with GVNG, Val Kilmer and The TwainMania Foundation join a host of other celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Richard Branson and others who have started  their nonprofits through the GVNG platform. GVNG is the first and only platform in the world that enables people and companies to start, run and operate a 501(c)(3) nonprofit[1]within 60 seconds, allowing users to begin fundraising and distributing grants or running nonprofit programs instantly.
