A star-studded line-up of participating artists participated as Our Time feted music legend Carly Simon at their 8th Annual Gala, April 19th, 2010, at NYU's Skirball Center & Rosenthal Pavilion.

The celebration, hosted by Edie Falco featured performances by Broadway stars and numerous other acclaimed artists, as well as kids who stutter, who covered such Carly Simon hits as "You're So Vain," "Anticipation," "Let the River Run," and other favorites. Honorary Chairs are Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols. Co-Chairs are Scott M. Delman & Fred Nelson

The evening was directed by Our Time Founder Taro Alexander, with Musical Direction by Everett Bradley.

For millions of children who stutter, there is no escape from the daily shame and emotional distress caused by this common, but widely misunderstood, speech disorder. Discrimination and social isolation can crush the spirit of these kids, as stuttering erodes a child's desire to speak, communicate and/or express themselves in any meaningful way. Often, they simply shut down.

At Our Time, children who stutter are given a window of hope and a dignified path to a life filled with self-esteem instead of self-loathing. Our Time is a non-profit organization that uses the arts as an innovative and effective tool to help improve the confidence and communication skills of children who stutter, ages 8-18. The company is committed to offering its NYC programming free of charge and providing financial aid for its national program, Camp Our Time.

Our Time relies on the generosity of its supporters in order to fund its ambitious year-round program. Each April, at their annual benefit gala, Our Time youth present original poems, speeches, and songs (written by the kids themselves) alongside professional artists. It is a night of celebration and fearlessness, as children who stutter stand on a stage in front of hundreds of audience members, and revel in the moment.
