The evening will raise funds for the Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest organization working on behalf of runaway and homeless LGBTQ youth; the AFC had a vital drop-in center destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in late October.

The night will kick off with a cocktail party from 7-8 PM, where photographer Victor Haim's art will be showcased and sold. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to the AFC, on top of all proceeds from ticket sales.

Acclaimed comedy duo The Haus of Mimosa will host the concert, which will feature the talents of Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Santino Fontana, Monica Raymund, Andy Mientus, Max Von Essen, Ali Stroker, Randy Harrison, Christina DeCicco, Donna Vivino, Declan Bennett, Ryann Redmond, Ariana DeBose and Gregory Haney.

XL Nightclub is located at 512 W. 42nd St. Tickets are available by clicking here.
