The Philadelphia City Council has officially approved a request by councilman David Oh to honor Philly native, actor/comedian Kevin Hart with his own day.
July 6th, which is also Hart’s birthday, will now be known as “Kevin Hart Day”.
Councilman Oh said, “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.”
Kevin isn’t only just a big comedic rock-star, he’s also a native that continues to show love to his hometown. In 2013, he donated $250,000 to Philadelphia schools to go toward computers. Then in 2015, he partnered with the United Negro College Fund to produce four $50,000 college scholarships for Philly high school students.
Even though this is a first for Philadelphia, last year, Hart also got his own day in the state of California(Feb. 22).
