From the organizers of this event:
“Even greater than lives Changed, are lives Saved. What better way to celebrate a man who has given so much to this mission than to join him in saving more lives. As stated above, all net proceeds from the concert will benefit Operation Underground Railroad, one of Tony’s most passionate causes. Tony & Sage have personally contributed towards the rescue and aftercare services for thousands of women and children to date. Their contributions have also helped fund the arrests of over 1,500 traffickers. Help us save 10,000 more lives!”
