Children's Health Fund Benefit Concert
With musical icons and glamorous celebrities, remarkable philanthropists and four special kids who are on their way to big things in life – Children’s Health Fund’s 27th Annual Benefit was an evening of inspiration, goodwill and hope for the next generation of Americans. The June 9 event at New York City’s Jazz at Lincoln Center featured three musical legends – Paul Simon, Dave Matthews and Aaron Neville – in a rare and unforgettable performance. The spectacular Jane Pauley and Julianne Moore roused the audience with a lightning round of fundraising. Four outstanding supporters of Children’s Health Fund received awards of appreciation. The event raised nearly $1.7 million to bring health care to children in need. And, if all that weren’t enough, we announced the launch of a major initiative with our new partner, British luxury car maker Jaguar Land Rover, that has the potential to reshape the educational landscape.
"One of the realizations I've come to, especially after dealing with politics in Washington, is that actually very few people care about children, poor children, and their health issues and it's very hard to convince people it's something that they should care about."
