Michael is an 11-year-old boy in North Carolina who attempted suicide after being viciously and repeatedly harrassed at school for his love of My Little Pony. He survived the attempt but was left permanently disabled. The Michael Morones Foundation’s mission is to educate communities worldwide on the social development and well-being of our youth. The Foundation works to ensure children that they are loved while providing our youth support and equipping them with the necessary life skills to enjoy a successful life.
On April 14, the theater community comes together to create change for Michael and for countless others.
Silent auction begins at 6pm, concert at 7pm.
