Join Dare2Care's Living the Change Campaign Against Teen Bullying
The Dare2Care - Unite Against Bullying Performing Arts & Fashion Gala, held at St. Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral Astrodome on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, is a benefit to educate, celebrate and integrate. The event will be a night of acceptance and inclusion.
Our May Day Gay Day evening is a call to action, a shout out to the Cleveland community that our young people are at significant risk from bullying and that we all share the responsibility of ensuring they do not have to live in fear. We are calling on those who are "Living the Change" to come and show your support.
The runway show, hosted by Project Runway's All Star and Season 9 Finalist Joshua McKinley, features unique Cleveland boutiques and designers. Performers include X Factor Finalist Jason Brockman, London's own Georgey & Sofie of the L Project singing their original song, "It Does Get Better", a hip-hop dance suite presented by Kevin Marr and students from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and a Broadway vocal performance by Joan Ellison and students from Baldwin Wallace and the Cleveland Institute of Music .
