Global Superstar Josh Groban Hosts Fourth Annual Find Your Light Gala To Raise Money For Arts Education
This past weekend, multi-platinum award-winning singer, songwriter, global superstar and philanthropist, Josh Groban hosted his fourth annual Find Your Light Gala at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA where stars joined together for a night of cocktails, dinner, auction, and performances by top musical artists. The event raised over $1.4 Million dollars to help provide arts education to children around the country.
The event featured performances from Sarah McLachlan, Ben Folds and Groban himself who was joined by children from locally supported programs such as the Young Musicians’ Choral Orchestra, Oaktown Jazz Workshop and more. This year, the Find Your Light Award was presented to legendary musician Tony Bennett and his wife, Susan Benedetto, for their lifetime of advocacy and philanthropy for arts education through Exploring the Arts.
“Almost 15 years ago, when my amazing fans presented me with a check and said ‘this is for your foundation when you start one.’ I never could have expected that eventually it would turn into the Find Your Light foundation or that we would put on galas that would help so many people,” says Groban. “Through the sheer willpower, passion, and philanthropic generosity of my fans, family and friends in this industry, we have done just that. This year we broke our previous records and made over a million dollars, all going to the kids to ensure as many young students get the gift of the life changing benefits of an arts education. I’m filled with gratitude and can’t wait to continue growing year by year to help more and more students.”
This week, Groban will attend this years Town & Country Philanthropy Summit, in New York City, to speak on the ” Arts Education in the Age of Incivility” panel alongside Adam Driver and Oskar Esutis. He will also perform on the TODAY Show this Friday, May 10th.
