A night to remember — and for an unforgettable cause!
The New Kids on the Block member joined forces with Generation Rescue to put on an epic benefit concert in St. Charles, IL on Tuesday night, raising $759,000 to spread awareness and fund a local low-income autism treatment center.
The event was packed with fans, sponsors, and supporters cheering on Wahlberg as he took the stage with special guests — including the Chicago Children’s Choir, along with fellow NKOTB members Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Danny Wood.
McCarthy kicked off the show with a heartfelt speech announcing the groundbreaking of a custom built health clinic providing comprehensive treatment for all those across the special needs spectrum.
She said of the event:
“This evening is very special to me. Not only does it help Generation Rescue provide low-income families with access to essential treatment, but it also gives Donnie and I a chance to connect with friends and fans in a special way. There’s no greater unity than spreading love for a good cause.”
We couldn’t agree more!
More special guests that stopped by Another Evening with Donnie Wahlberg were Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris from Boyz II Men and hip-hop group Naughty By Nature. Power of the ’90s!
Sounds like the evening couldn’t be more of a success! Ch-ch-check out more pics from the event (above).
