Almost five years ago, Super Storm Sandy ripped through the homes and lives of thousands living in the shore areas of Staten Island and other parts of New York City. Yellow Boots, a powerhouse grassroots organization and recognized 501c3, was born of the devastation in Staten Island and saw hundreds of families through their long-term recovery. Yellow Boots continues to provide assistance, worldwide, to areas experiencing the peril of natural disasters.

The 2017 hurricane season has been unusually active and has served areas of the U.S. Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico, and many of the Islands with more than their fair share of devastation. Yellow Boots is determined to assist by providing volunteers on the ground, and satisfying the immediate and long-term needs of recovery workers as well as those affected.   

In order to fund this widespread mission, Spotlight Theatre presents “Voices of Hope,” to help raise funds which will allow Yellow Boots to purchase necessary tools and supplies. A wave of contemporary Broadway songs will be performed by a cast of musical theatre professionals. Songs from some of your favorite musicals like “Hamilton,” “Dear Evan Hansen,” “Les Miserables,” “Waitress,” and more, will fill the air. Special Guests are Curtis High School Performing Arts Group and Spotlight Children’s Theatre Company. Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will go to those needing assistance in the many areas directly hit. Mary Aloia, co-founder of Spotlight Theatre states, “Spotlight Theatre is thrilled to bring such outstanding talent to the Music Hall stage! We hope to fill every seat for this important and worthwhile cause.”

Yellow Boots has coordinated thousands of external volunteers and volunteer groups from all over the country since Sandy hit in October 2012. “Our hope is to remain instrumental to all communities needing assistance after experiencing a natural disaster, as we learned firsthand what the needs are,” says Ross Decker, Co-Founding Board Member of Yellow Boots. He continues, “As such, Yellow Boots becomes a constant and reliable source of disaster relief work in affected communities here in the United States, and around the world.” This essential work will continue only through regular and effective fundraising. It is our hope that people will look at this Concert as an opportunity to enjoy a night out, and help fund critical recovery and relief work at the same time.

Yellow Boots would like to extend sincere thanks to The Music Hall at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Curtis High School Performing Arts Group, Spotlight Theatre, and the Spotlight Children’s Theatre Company. Last, but not least, we’d like to thank all our volunteers and those who consistently support the important work we do.
