"This year, STARS is blending two of its major fundraising efforts into one extraordinary evening. The 15-year-old "Chair-ish The Kids", which benefitted the Kids on the Block program, merging with the Vince Gill benefit concert, pulls together these remarkable events into one night of incredible art and world-class music," Dinwiddie, STARS' CEO, said.
