“New York City is at the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Robin Hood CEO Wes Moore in a statement. “This crisis has created a whole new set of challenges for the millions of New Yorkers who already struggled to make ends meet. This is a moment where we must all come together and rise up together as a community in support of our neighbors and in support of one another.”
All proceeds from the benefit will go directly to New Yorkers in need of food, shelter, health services, cash assistance, legal services, and educational support. Rise Up New York! will air live on CNBC in addition to all New York City TV stations, iHeartMedia and Entercom broadcast radio, News 12, Spectrum News NY1, and SiriusXM.
Furthermore, the benefit will also see appearances by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Angie Mar, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Barbara Streisand, Bette Midler, Robert De Niro, Ben Platt, Trevor Noah, and New York Giants Super Bowl champions Eli Manning, Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck, and Phil Simms.
