R Baby Foundation’s “Rockin’ to Save Babies’ Lives” Benefit Concert

Hammerstein Ballroom , New York City



On Wednesday, July 23rd, R Baby hosted it’s biannual fundraiser “Rockin’ to Save Babies’ Lives” Benefit Concert with Z100 at The Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, featuring live performances with recording artists A Great Big World, Mary Lambert, Ryan Star, Hannah Bronfman, and DJ Cassidy. The room was filled with almost 1,300 guests, including doctors, parents, celebrities and media united to improve emergency pediatric care through training emergency room physicians, getting them the right equipment to treat babies, and creating a national standard for pediatric emergency care. Almost $1M was raised while guests had some serious fun in the process — tastings from the city’s best restaurants including Aureole, BLT Steak and Oceana, beverages by Avion Tequila and Devotion Vodka, prizes and a live auction!

Guests took pictures at multiple photobooth locations, participated in a  selfie contest with exciting prizes and our social media #rbabyrocks garnered hundreds of posts on Twitter and Instagram.
