LeVar Burton will be the guest speaker for HIP Housing’s ‘Cheers to 50 Years!’ Anniversary, fundraiser, which will take place next month at Fox Theatre, according to a news release from the organization. 

Known for his performances on Roots, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Reading Rainbow, Burton will take part in a conversation with HIP Housing’s Executive Director Kate Comfort Harr on the power of storytelling as a means of solving the affordable housing crisis, the release said. 

The fundraiser will also pay tribute to HIP Housing’s founder, Lois Almen Everett; former agency Associate Director, Joelle Perkocha; and long-time agency supporter and Honorary Board Member, Congresswoman Jackie Speier.
