The American Indian College Fund has signed Tony-award winning Broadway vocalist Idina Menzel to perform at its 25th Anniversary Gala on October 20 at Pier Sixty in New York City.
Menzel was also the voice of Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen,” and won a Tony for her portrayal as Elphaba in Wicked.
The black tie fundraising event will benefit Native American higher education and celebrate the College Fund’s mission and years of service providing Native American access to higher education.
Aside from Menzel, Emmy-award winning television journalist David Ushery, who co-anchors the weekend editions of NBC 4’s “News 4 New York” at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. and is the creator and host of Emmy Award-nominated “The Debrief with David Ushery,” will serve as emcee for the event.
There will be a silent auction at the gala featuring unique items including Native art. Individual tickets, tables and sponsorships are available by visiting CollegeFund.org/Gala or calling 303-426-8900.
