Living the Dream Foundation announces Pierce The Veil singer Vic Fuentes as CEO and Co-Chairman.
Since 2016, the gold-certified chart-topping artist has championed the non-profit, which helps children and young adults afflicted by life-threatening illnesses stay positive, maintain hope, and appreciate each and every day in the face of their afflictions. For the past three years, he served as an ambassador and now the organization proudly appoints him as its new leader.

As part of this appointment, he endeavors to utilize his platform to expand the influence and impact of Living The Dream Foundation.
“I love being a part of this foundation, because it’s so tangible and real,” Fuentes said. “It’s amazing that we actually get to see—in person—the faces of the people who we are trying to help. I’m excited to join forces with Scottie Somers and the entire Living The Dream Foundation team to continue their mission of inspiring hope and positivity in the lives of these people who need and deserve it most.”
Scottie Somers, Founder and Co-Chairman of Living The Dream Foundation, welcomed Fuentes warmly, saying, “Vic came into the picture in the most natural way: as an artist that cared, showed empathy towards, and did all that he could do to put smiles on the faces of our Living The Dream Foundation guests. Many guests would request to meet Vic and Pierce The Veil around the world, and evolved when Vic expressed a greater interest in doing more to help the mission. Several years after working together, I invited him to come on as an ambassador. These were just stepping stones to get to where we’re at today with Vic as CEO and Co-Chairman. He brings a wealth of industry knowledge, leadership skills, and great energy to our foundation. Because of this alliance, we couldn’t be happier. We will only continue to get stronger.”
