From now until Thursday, June 4, visit Charitybuzz.com to bid on the opportunity to meet Audra at the Covenant House’s A Night of Broadway Stars Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall. The event, directed by lyricist and composer Neil Berg, will feature performances from Broadway’s biggest stars as they join Covenant House in celebrating the homeless kids who are now independent young adults and those who are still trying to find their way. In a statement about the event, Audra said, “The more I’ve learned about what Covenant House is doing for homeless all over the country and around the world, the more excited I’ve become to join this powerful movement on behalf of homeless kids.
Last year’s gala raised more than $1.14 million and made a significant impact on the kids staying at the Covenant House. Since last year’s event, over 57,000 youth have been served through the Covenant House’s outreach and residential programs across the United States, Canada, and Latin America. Of those 57,000, 3,555 found their fresh start at the Covenant House’s Crisis Shelter in New York.
