This incredible event kicked off with a VIP reception and thrilling HYPE! session in the Luxe Lounge at Lucky Strike NYC. A festive cocktail hour followed, including a warm welcome from host Paul Rudd and SAY Founder Taro Alexander, a beautiful speech from SAY participant, Kaiden, and an unbelievable Morning Song from Brandon Victor Dixon.
Then it was time to bowl! More than 300 guests moved into the lanes to bowl a few frames, mingle with Celebrity and SAY Kid Lane Captains, enjoy great food and drinks, bid on amazing Silent Auction items, and dance the night away to the tunes of DJ Hillel.
The entire team at SAY would like to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make Paul Rudd’s 8th Annual Bowling Benefit such an incredible success. This event would not have been possible without the dedication of our Benefit Committee, Board of Trustees, tireless Volunteer Brigade, and the staff at Lucky Strike NYC. Deepest gratitude to all of our celebrity friends for selflessly giving their time and bringing so much joy to this special night.
THANK YOU to all who attended, donated, bid in our Silent Auction and contributed to the Paul Rudd Bowling Benefit! Your boundless generosity will enable SAY to keep providing essential programs that empower, educate and encourage kids who stutter to speak their truth, open their hearts and be themselves.
