Sway Calloway To Join Viacom, Business Titans and Celebrities at All Stars Project Benefit May 6th
The annual All Stars Gala, â€śPerformance Lives! People Grow!â€ť is taking center stage at Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday, May 6.Â The event will raise $2 million to support the All Stars Projectâ€™s work nationwide as a leader and innovator in the field of Afterschool Development, using the power of performance to transform the lives of youth and poor communities.
Rapper, radio personality, journalist, hip-hop icon and Executive Producer/MTV Host Sway Calloway, will be the special guest host for the All Starsâ€™ Gala benefit. Calloway has toured the All Stars 42nd Street national headquarters and has been a supporter of its programs.
Thanks to Viacom â€“ one of the All Starsâ€™ corporate partners â€“ Artist and MTV Talent Justina Valentine will perform alongside youth at the benefit.Â Additionally, Peppermint, Sasha Velour, Milk, Carson Kressley and others from RuPaulâ€™s Drag Race and World of Wonder will be attending.
At the Gala, the All Stars will be honoring Viacom and Chris McCarthy of MTV, VH1, CMT and Logo, Colleen Oâ€™Neill of EY, Derek DiRisio of PSEG Services Corporation, and Rose Lavandero of TM Financial Forensics LLC. They are all champions of inner-city youth who, according to the All Stars have made a deep impact in New York, New Jersey, and nationwide.
The All Stars Project is a 100 percent privately funded non-profit, so the $2 million that will be raised at the Gala will go directly to work with nearly 20,000 inner-city youth and their families from New York City, Newark, Jersey City, Chicago, Dallas and the San Francisco Bay Area.
The programs are free, privately-funded, and built in partnership with thousands of individual and corporate supporters and volunteers.
