On Monday, October 24, the African Children’s Choir® hosted their 3rd Annual Fundraising Gala sponsored by ATC International at the Highline Ballroom. Comedian and TV host Tom Papa emceed the event, whose participants included Wicked stars Richard Blake & Jackie Burns, Jim Brickman, Kimberley Locke, Robin Meade, Lion King stars Chauntée Schuler and Tshidi Manye, Marty Thomas, Ben Utecht, Mario Cantone, Stephen Baldwin and a special performance by the internationally acclaimed African Children’s Choir.
Over $30,000 was raised on-site with funds supporting the mission of the Choir and enabling its parent organization to continue to fully care for over 1600 students until they have completed their schooling. The African Children’s Choir is committed to working with impoverished communities to help children receive the care and quality education they deserve.
Thank you to all our sponsors, donors and friends who made the event possible.
