CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Business Guild will bring in J.D. Lewis, owner of the Actor’s Lab of Charlotte and Los Angeles, to its monthly meeting on April 19 at 5:30 p.m. at the Lesbian & Gay Community Center, 820 Hamilton St.

He will address members and guests, including their children, and tell all about his upcoming voyage with his two adopted sons, Jack and Buck, who are also expected to attend, as they kick-start a humanitarian venture called, “Twelve in Twelve” in July.

Lewis has a passion for helping others, especially children who are trapped in poverty and helpless to escape its ravages. The around-the-world tour of 12 countries in 12 months includes performing volunteer work in each country and filming the journey.

Admission is $20 for adults. Kids 16 and under get in free with parent/guardian. Price includes dinner and non-alcoholic beverages.

The event is sponsored by JHG Financial Advisors.
