In June 2015 we had the honor of sponsoring a great show to raise funds for older New York City foster kids needing permanent families…and we met the wonderful Charlene Tilton, who played Lucy Ewing in the original hit TV show Dallas at the pre-event celebration. Thanks go to The Knickerbocker Hotel at Times Square for hosting the pre-event party.
More than 1,000 people turned out to hear the fabulous Tina Fey, Jane Krakowski, Darren Criss, Tituss Burgess, Megan Hilty and Caroline Rhea and more at the “Voices for the Voiceless: Stars for Foster Kids” show at the St. James Theatre — on Broadway!
The inaugural event was hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley with BeachBody.com. More than $500,000 was raised in support for You Gotta Believe, New York’s only nonprofit organization specifically focused on finding permanent families for youth in foster care aged 10 years and older, and the Council on Adoptable Children (COAC).
