Over 2,000 students served by After-School All-Stars South Florida will benefit from the funds raised at the event. The organization provides school-based after-school programs for low-income youth in underserved neighborhoods in South Florida and the country. Event curator, Natalia Sol, says “Since its inception five years ago, the annual event has raised more than $2.5 million enabling the charity to fulfill their mission of helping students succeed in school and life.” The $3 million milestone is on track to be reached at this year’s edition of the “All-In for All-Stars”. After-School All-Stars was founded in 1992 by Arnold Schwarzenegger when it was called the Inner City Games Foundation (ICGF). The organization’s name was changed to its current one in 2003.
