The event honored the work of Craig Spencer, President & CEO of the Arden Group and the Vice Chairman of the JBJSF, and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. After hearing from Mr. Spencer and Jon Bon Jovi, guests were entertained with some of the tunes you know and love, like All That Jazz, Mr. Bojangles and Greatest Love of All.
Covenant House youth also shared their remarkable journeys from the perils of the street to opportunity, inspiration, and hope.
The evening raised more than $450,000 for homeless youth, making it the most successful Night of Broadway Stars event ever for Covenant House Pennsylvania.
Since Covenant House Pennsylvania opened its doors 15 years ago, the non-profit agency has served more than 35,000 youth in crisis. Many of these young people are victims of violence, abandonment and abuse, and have aged out of the foster care system. A Night of Broadway Stars raises critical funds to help support Covenant House’s important work serving young people in crisis throughout our community and celebrates the young people who have worked hard to make homelessness part of their past.
