Following in the footsteps of last year’s grand charity party, this 4th installment of Three to Be’s annual charity gala was a blast with tear-jerking speeches as well as non-stop entertainment and activities, great food, great vibes packed with 1,000 people at Muzik. It’s always a well-attended, highly-anticipated soiree with this year’s theme of “Just Be Love”. This year’s headlining performers, Salt-N-Pepa, did not disappoint at all with the same incredible energy that I remember from last year with Naughty by Nature. And it was great to see that even after the energetic duo left the stage this charity party went late into the night with more live entertainment, dancing and laughs. Kudos to the team for another extraordinary event and raising over $500,000 for children with neurological disorders.

Highlights from the evening included violinist extraordinaire Yosvani Castañeda, live paintings on stage by Jessgo, dance performance by members of Pussycat Dolls, the one and only Salt-N-Pepa, Sole Power dance performance and so much more.

Guests in attendance included the hosts Leslie Roberts and Liza Fromer as well as Michael Landsberg, Kenny Hotz and Mike Chalut.
