Chita Rivera, who is also the Chairperson of The Art Attack Foundation, will be performing. Ms. Rivera states, “Now, more than ever, young people with talent need our help with training, support, encouragement and above all opportunity.  That is exactly what Art Attack provides, and why they need our help, in order to accomplish all that they achieve.  That very next scholarship that is given could be the one for a future star in the arts.  I am proud and delighted to be a part of this fine organization.”
