Our Time's 12th Annual Benefit Gala will be presented April 28 at 7 PM at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts & Rosenthal Pavilion at New York University.



Hosted by Meredith Vieira, the evening will honor businessman John Sculley and will welcome past honorees Austin Pendleton, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, Ken Roberson, Carly Simon and Bill Withers. 

Attendees can expect performances and presentations from Lauren Ambrose, Michael Cerveris, Rachel Dratch, Jeremy Jordan, Zachary Levi, Jesse L. Martin, James Naughton, Kelli O'Hara, Steven Pasquale, Gloria Reuben, Krysta Rodriguez, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Amy Ryan, Fisher Stevens and David Strathairn as well as the children participating in Our Time's programs. E Street Band member Everett Bradley is the musical director.

The evening, according to press notes, will "celebrate the courage of people who stutter - more than 70 million globally, including 5% of all children - and honor individuals whose stories and achievements continue to inspire people worldwide. The organization will debut its new name, SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, embracing its vision that every voice matters and pledging increased support for children who stutter."

Cocktails, dinner and live auction will also be part of the one-night-only event. Gala proceeds help SAY provide more than $400,000 in financial aid annually, so families in-need can access programming for children who stutter.
