Booboo & Fivel Stewart’s Childhelp Benefit Concerts
Posted 08/17/2011 by Childhelp
The Booboo & Fivel Concerts to End Child Abuse in Tustin, CA and Tempe, AZ on August 12 and 13, respectively, sent a powerful message to young people all over the country — they have the power to fight child abuse.
These concerts were the Stewart duo’s first benefit events as Childhelp Wings Ambassadors of Hope. The young actors and singers are using their talents to bring awareness to the issue of child abuse and inspire other young people to join the fight in their communities.
Booboo Stewart is most commonly known for his role in the popular Twilight Saga as the youngest werewolf, Seth, and his sister Fivel’s musical talents have won her the lead on several tracks with the band My Allowance.
Their combined popularity attracted the attention of approximately 1,100 concert-goers and raised more than $5,000 for Childhelp.
“We are so excited by the success of this event,“ says Childhelp Wings Coordinator, Lisa Evans. “The Stewart family’s involvement with the Childhelp Wings program has inspired a tremendous amount of interest and support, and inquires from youth wanting to get involved with Wings have quadrupled since they began working with us in June.”
Thanks to Childhelp Wings corporate sponsors the two concerts were entirely underwritten. We greatly appreciate the generosity of:
Vestar Property and their donation of the concert venues Tempe Marketplace and Tustin District Legacy
- Swank AV and their donation of the sound systems
- Bowlmor Lanes and Dave & Busters for hosting the VIP reception
- JW Marriott Camelback Inn for providing accommodations for the whole Stewart team
- U-Haul for providing transportation
- Microsoft Store for their donation of giveaways for the VIP Experience attendees
All of these sponsors, and more, came together to demonstrate their support of Childhelp.
The Childhelp Wings program is designed to empower a younger demographic, teaching them that their small actions combined with the actions of others, make a huge impact. They organize their own small fundraising activities, as well as participate in nationally sanctioned Wings initiatives that collectively raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to support Childhelp services.
“Young people have the power to fight this epidemic” says Evans. "They have a voice and we’re proud that so many of them have chosen to use it for this cause.”
