In a previous statement, Nightlife Awards executive producer Scott Siegel said, "It's crazy to be raising money for a show even as we're preparing to put it on, but I am very grateful to Carolyn Montgomery-Forant for suggesting this benefit at The Snapple Center as a way of helping to fund the Nightlife Awards at The Town Hall. I am, of course, also deeply grateful to all of the great talent that has volunteered to be part of it, with more and more joining the list even though this is being created with very short notice. This outpouring of support has really touched me."
