May 21, 2012 - PRLog -- IBG, Inc. is thrilled to announce yet another group to their "My Letter to Fear" staged reading roster, taking place on June 24th 2012 in Beverly Hills. Lesley Fera, Mekenna Melvin, and Tamara Taylor will join the already announced Sufe Bradshaw ('Veep'), Jen Lilley ('General Hospital'), Elizabeth De Razzo ('Eastbound & Down'), Charlene Tilton ('Dallas'), Jennifer Aspen ('GCB') and headliner Constance Marie ('Switched at Birth') live on stage in Los Angeles.

Fera is proud to be a part of this IBG benefit evening.  Currently, Lesley can be seen on 'Pretty Little Liars' (ABC Family), in which she plays Veronica Hastings. Lesley has recurred on '24', 'CSI: Miami', and 'Justice'. Other television appearances include 'The Mentalist', 'Detroit 1-8-7', 'Criminal Minds', 'Without A Trace', 'House', 'Cold Case', 'Nip/Tuck', 'The Drew Carey Show', 'The Practice', and many others. A theatre lover, Lesley has also been a longtime member of Pacific Resident Theatre in Venice, California where she has been seen in such shows as 'The Hasty Heart', 'Happy End', 'Big Love', 'Anna Christie', and 'Lade Chatterley's Lover (which earned her an L.A. Drama Critic's Circle Award in 2000 for her performance). Other theatre credits include 'Our Town' (The Broad Stage), 'Baby Taj' (Theatre Works), 'Dealing with Clair' (The Matrix), 'Communicating Doors' (San Jose Rep), 'A Sense of Place' (American Stage), 'The Children's Hour' (Provincetown Rep), 'Noises Off' (Asolo Theatre Company), and more. Lesley wishes to thank Elizabeth De Razzo for including her in this reading and Ned Mochel for his generous heart.

Melvin is probably best known for her role as Alex, Colonel John Casey's daughter, in the fan favorite NBC spy series, 'Chuck'. The California native got her start in acting at a young age, though, while training at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the British American Drama Academy. She has also appeared in 'Lie To Me', 'Detroit 1-8-7', and 'Amber Lake', a project for which she also contributed the story.

Taylor currently stars as Dr. Camille Saroyan on FOX' fan favorite crime drama, 'Bones'. However, she is also well-known for a number of memorable roles in series like 'Angel', 'LOST', 'NCIS', '3 LBS', 'Sex, Love & Secrets', and in Joss Whedon's 'Serenity.' On the big screen, Taylor has played opposite Marlon Wayans in 'Senseless' and Halle Berry in 'Introducing Dorothy Dandridge'. She also portrayed Debrah Simmons in 'Diary of a Mad Black Woman.'

“My Letter To Fear” is a collection of personal essays, broken down monologue style, written by IBG, Inc’s own Patricia Steffy. Ranging from comedic to heartbreaking, the stories told within are ones that tap into the female perspective by offering commentary on and first-hand accounts of everything from what a woman’s worth, to finding inner peace and self-confidence, to abuse, and misguided relationships.

Tickets have gone on sale to the general public as of May 21 2012, and the proceeds from this event will benefit the East L.A. Women’s Center, which provides services to women and children, focusing on sexual, domestic, and family violence and HIV/AIDS. The center works to empower and give hope to individuals, families, and the community at large, with an emphasis on bilingual/bicultural services for the Latino Community.

Tickets will be on sale on IBG, Inc's official website: http://www.ibginc.org.

Founded in late 2008, IBG Inc (http://www.ibginc.org) established a non-profit focusing on utilizing the power of philanthropy through the arts to benefit a broad range of charities worldwide. We act as a “fundraiser facilitator” for underfunded, under publicized, and start-up charities that would otherwise struggle with the logistics and costs associated with event fundraising. This work has taken on a critical importance as the economy has been slow to recover, and we find ourselves with increasingly frequent requests for assistance.
