Jon Stewart to Host Blue School Gala Benefit

Blue School Gala

Jon Stewart hosts First Annual Blue School Fundraiser in support of the Blue School and its outreach programs

New York City’s Blue School, preschool and elementary educational center co-founded by the creators of Blue Man Group, combines the most effective established strategies in education with new approaches backed by advances in neuroscience, human development and social-emotional intelligence, to develop a curriculum which helps children fall in love with the joy of curiosity and learning. This approach, along with their vision for expansion and curriculum-sharing, adds the Blue School to a list of luminaries seeking global education transformation.

The evening will feature “lively entertainment and dialogue” from such entertainment luminaries as:

Blue Man Group,
Todd Barry,
John Hodgman,
Eric Lewis,
Cangelosi Cards,
Main Squeeze Orchestra,
Billy Crudup,
Darren Aronofsky, and
Rachel Weisz (and others TBA).

Hosted by Jon Stewart.

Tickets to this benefit start at $250.
