This year the Robin Hood Foundation turned into The Game of Thrones.
We had a White Walker that had a fight with Jon Snow and we raised almost 70 MILLION dollars!
The Annual Benefit is the largest fundraising event in the United States
Themed “Robin Hood to the Power of You”, the evening included a concert from Shawn Mendes in coordination with a light show from the Empire State Building, a stand-up set from Sebastian Maniscalco, and surprise performance by Pharrell
Funds raised at the benefit support more than 200 community partners working to fight poverty in New York City
“We set out 31 years ago to fight this problem of poverty and I am proud that we are still attacking it with the same vigor that we did on day one, and with a much bigger army,” said Robin Hood founder Paul Tudor Jones. “Yet again, this city that has given so many of us so much has come together to give back. We had a hell of a night, and raised more money than we did last year — that’s the power of bringing everyone together to do good.”
The Robin Hood benefit is the largest gala raising money to fight poverty in the United States. Donations from the gala account for the majority of Robin Hood’s annual operating budget. Thanks to the generosity of Robin Hood’s Board which covers its operating costs, 100 percent of the funds raised tonight will go directly to Robin Hood’s more than 200 community partners who run on-the-ground programs to fight poverty across New York City. “Tonight we came together to give the poverty fight what it needs,” said Robin Hood CEO Wes Moore. “These are vulnerable times, 42 percent of New Yorkers have experienced poverty at some point over the past three years. The exponential impact of Robin Hood’s work has never been more important, and I am so proud to lead this community of caring and impact that brings together school teachers and portfolio managers, accountants and social workers.”
Guests entered the event through a hallway lined with 7,000 backpacks donated by Spreetail filled with school supplies – which will be donated to students in need through Robin Hood’s community partners. The evening program highlighted one the community partners, Relay Graduate School of Education, which empowers the next generation of educators to achieve success by working directly in low-income communities while earning their masters degree and building lasting connections within the communities they serve. Robin Hood helped found Relay in 2007, making it the first graduate school of education created in New York in the past 80 years.
Yasha Morgan, a KIPP NYC graduate and 8th grade science teacher who went to Relay and now teaches in the classroom he attended, spoke from the stage saying, “None of us would be here without the communities that raised us. We are not independent. We are interdependent. I didn’t find success on my own. You didn’t find success on your own. No one finds success on their own. Someone invested in you. Now you owe it to be the pillars of someone else’s success.”
Entertainment included a performances by Shawn Mendes, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, who was introduced by Gayle King. Kenan Thompson introduced Pharrell who gave a surprise performance of his hit songs “Happy” and “Freedom”. Eli Manning along with the Robin Hood Teen Council introduced Shawn Mendes who performed his new single “If I Can’t Have You” in coordination with a music-to-light show from the Empire State Building in partnership with iHeartMedia. The Teen Council is a community of students who meet monthly to learn about tangible ways to fight poverty. Shawn Mendes also held a post-gala concert for benefit attendees and Arrow members of The Forest.

Andrew Lloyd Webber is arguably the most successful composer of our time. He is best known for stage and film adaptations of his musicals Jesus Christ Superstar (1973), Cats (1994), Evita (1996), and The Phantom of the Opera (2004).
He was born on March 22, 1948, in South Kensington in London, England, the first of two sons of William Lloyd Webber, an organist and composer. His mother, Jean Johnstone, was a pianist and violinist. Young Andrew Lloyd Webber learned to play various musical instruments at home and began composing at an early age. He continued his music studies at Westminster School, where his father was an organist. At the age of 9, young Andrew was able to play the organ and assisted his father during performances. In 1964 he went to Oxford University as a Queens Scholar of history.
In 1965 he met lyricist Tim Rice and dropped out of school to compose musicals and pop songs. In 1968 he had his first success with the West End production of 'Joseph and the Amasing Techicolor Dreamcoat'. From the 1960s to 2000s Lloyd Webber has been constantly updating his style as an eclectic blend of musical genres ranging from classical to rock, pop, and jazz, and with inclusion of electro-acoustic music and choral-like numbers in his musicals.
It was an honor to work with Andrew all week promoting Jesus Christ Super Star airing LIVE on NBC on Easter Sunday.
He had Glenn Close with him taking about her play with him "Sunset Boulevard"
The next day it was all about John Legend!!! he will be singing most if not all of the songs.
Truly magical week!
