Point Foundation held its second annual Voices On Point dinner and concert on September 7, 2013. The audience of nearly 400 people enjoyed performances by Alex Newell of "Glee," Richard Marx, Deniece Williams, G.R.L and Melissa Manchester. Numerous celebrities joined our scholars and alumni on stage, including Carmen Electra, Florence Henderson, Victoria Justice, Bai Ling, Greg Louganis, Wendie Malick and Judith Light.
A highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Point Courage Award to Dean Pitchford, who wrote the screenplay and songs to the film "Footloose" and won an Academy Award and Golden Globe for the song "Fame." The award recognized Pitchford as an inspiration to young LGBTQ artists as well as his generous and steadfast support of many LGBTQ organizations including Point Foundation.
The 2013 Voices On Point event raised $400,000, making it Point Foundation's most successful fundraising event in Los Angeles! These funds will directly contribute to the academic and professional development of our scholars who are breaking down some of the most serious stigmas plaguing the LGBTQ community.
