Kevin Hart, Kevin Hart Day

Kevin Hart is known all over the world, but he grew up and got his start right here in Philadelphia.

The City Council passed a resolution Thursday (March 16) dubbing July 6th, 2017 as “Kevin Hart Day,” which coincides with the comedian’s birthday.

According to NBC 10, Councilman-at-Large David Oh serves as a recognition for Hart’s dedication to the arts and his hometown.

“Kevin Hart is a fantastic ambassador for the City of Philadelphia, and this is a simple way to show him gratitude, whether through his hilarious sense of humor or through his heartfelt generosity towards his hometown, Kevin Hart knows how to bring a smile to everyone in Philadelphia,” Councilman Oh told NBC 10.

Hart, who is from Philly, has donated $250,000 to the School District of Philadelphia and Parks and Recreation facilities for new computers. He has also sponsored college scholarships valued at $50,000 each for four Philly high school students.

His philanthropy dedication to the arts also exceeds Philly, as he’s donated over $10,000 to one of the largest HBCU (Historical Black College University) bands in Houston, Texas Southern University’s Ocean of Soul.
