Johnjay and Rich, founders of the Johnjay and Rich #LoveUp Foundation, hosted the #LoveUp Follow your Dreams Graduation Celebration on Saturday June 22, 2019. The event, held at Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Gainey Ranch Resort and Spa and attended by nearly 250 guests, celebrated the accomplishments of the Class of 2019 in the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation’s Keys to Success and Scholarship Programs. Emcee’d by Sean McLaughlin, primetime anchor of CBS 5, the graduation featured a keynote speech and performance by nationally celebrated hip hop artist Sincerely Collins. The event was funded in part by a $40,000 grant to the #LoveUp Foundation from the Active Scottsdale 20-30 Foundation. Each of the 50 graduates was introduced and presented with a gift package nearing $500 in value. It was the largest group of graduates from the Keys to Success program in its history.
