A Must See Performance for a Good Cause

This year’s benefit on Monday, September 12th at 7pm helped to raise awareness and funds to support older kids in foster care.  Hollywood and Broadway stars took to the stage for a night of special appearances and musical performances all in support of You Gotta Believe, New York City’s only non-profit dedicated to connecting older youth in foster care with permanent families before they age out of the system alone.

A Musical-Filled Night to Remember

Presented by Seth Rudetsky, James Wesley and Beachbody.com, the night featured show-stopping performances by Chita Rivera, Darren Criss, Megan Hilty, Tony Yazbeck, Stephanie Mills, Gloria Gaynor and Liz Callaway and more.

Couldn’t make it out to the show?  You can still donate to support YGB’s efforts.

Proceeds from this event will go to support YGB’s efforts to ensure that every child that leaves foster care does so with a family.  Every 23 minutes another youth ages out of the foster care system alone to a future filled hardships — from lack of education to unemployment to higher rates of incarceration, poor health, early parenthood and homelessness.

HufPo Quote

But we can make a difference by connecting every youth in care with what they were promised when they entered the system — a family.


Last year’s event was a huge success and we raised over $500,000 to help connect more kids with family.  We can’t wait to see what this year’s Voices for the Voiceless: Stars for Foster Kids brings!
