She Angels Raises Money For a Good Cause While Showcasing Talent Galore

She Angels Raises Money For a Good Cause While Showcasing Talent Galore

Did you know less than 2% of philanthropic and Venture Capitalism giving in the US goes to women and girls’ causes.

Last night at The Green Room 42 Broadway Sings For She Angels was a night to remember. Some of the industry’s most beloved actors, singers, dancers, comedians, and personalities performed in a benefit designed to raise funding for She Angels Foundation, an organization that provides grants for female entrepeneurs – not just women but girls, too. The evening, was hosted by respected award winning television journalist Roma Torre, with the iconic Maestro Ron Abel at the keyboards. The recipient of this years grant was Statement Junky.
