4th of July Celebration

July 4, 2003 – Los Angeles: L. Ron Hubbard Way was teeming with visitors, revelers and artists celebrating Independence Day with singers, instrumentals, jazz and rock bands as well as a good old-fashioned BBQ.

Artists For A Better World International (AFABW) supplied some of the entertainment for the day and maintained an information booth, alongside other social-betterment organizations. Visitors to the AFABW booth were enlightened about the AFABW purpose of using aesthetics, and uniting persons of goodwill, to raise the awareness of artists to use their creative power to benefit mankind by supporting social betterment activities dear to their heart.

Nine-year-old Alexa Sharp (pictured above) was handing out fliers promoting the AFABW 3rd Annual Arts Festival coming up Sept 14-21, 2003, at the Church of Scientology, Celebrity Centre International, in Hollywood.

AFABW Founder, Barbara Cordova Oliver, and AFABW Producer, Tom Fair, were amongst the performers for the day, and they sang an original, co-written by Barbara and Dan Weitzman, entitled “Planet of Peace,” to the outdoor audience.

AFABW member and singer, Gary Konigsberg, entertained the crowd with his rendition of “Born In The USA” by Bruce Springsteen.

Artists For A Better World International President, George Alger, remarked “Here in the United States, the 4th of July represents the attainment of a set of ideals for the purpose of freedom and building a better world. AFABW shares the essence of those ideals, and is working to unite artists desiring to create a better world, for everyone, through aesthetics.”
