More than 800 guests attended an exciting performance, hosted by Meredith Vieira. The kids of SAY took the stage with celebrity supporters, Rachel Dratch, Jeremy Jordan, Jesse L. Martin, Kelli O’Hara, Krysta Rodriguez, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Fisher Stevens, for an inspiring and uplifting performance, directed by Taro Alexander with musical direction by Everett Bradley.
John Sculley – business legend and person who stutters – received the SAY Hero Award, with past award recipients Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, Ken Roberson and Bill Withers being honored as well.
More than 350 guests then joined us for an amazing dinner and exciting live auction.
The event generated more than $650,000, helping SAY continue to offer financial aid to many families-in-need so their children can attend SAY programs.
