The event featured a live performance from James and a special DJ set by Kid Capri with Technician the DJ. The evening brought out numerous VIPs, notables and celebrities, including Justin Davis of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and many others who supported the event.

The fundraiser benefited the New Heights Charter School located in Upper Harlem who’s mission is to graduate students who are prepared to succeed in college and life.

The school was founded in 2006 to address this disparity by providing a college preparatory education in a safe and nurturing environment to students in grades 5-12.
