OMG “Inspiring Youth For Change” Summit Postponed


Our “Inspiring Youth For Change” Summit
must regretfully be postponed

Here is the official statement issued by the IS Foundation:

We have just been notified that the event has to be rescheduled.  For contractual reasons outside of his control, Ian Somerhalder must regretfully withdraw his participation in the OMG 2011 “Inspiring Youth for Change” Summit set to take place September 10th. Considering his great admiration for the One More Generation organization as well as the panel of inspiring guest speakers, Ian would like to emphasize his desire to participate in future events and his deepest apologies for his unfortunate absence.

Ian is being asked to attend a last minute event in CA on Sept 10th which he is contractually obligated to participate in.  When you are as popular as Ian, things like this are bound to happen.  We have a conference call scheduled with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation for Monday evening where we will solidify a postponement date.  We are working on establishing a new date for the summit that works for all our guest speakers and we will post the details as soon as they are worked out.

We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience.  If you one of the under 300 folks who already purchased a ticket, rest assured we will be issuing full refunds this week.  We fully understand that this is a situation which is out of Ian’s (and his foundations) control and we hope all our fans will understand as well.  I have met Ian and know that he is deeply sorry that this happened and he will do everything in his power to make the rescheduled event a huge success.

Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send me an email at and I will get back with you as soon as possible.

Thanks for your understanding and continued support.

Best regards from the entire OMG Team ;-)
