Rosie's Gala: Building Dreams for Kids took place on November 24, 2008 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square in honor of Broadway legend, Chita Rivera. BroadwayWorld's cameras shared in the night of fun for a great cause!

Every day in the United States, over 2,000 children are born into poverty, which can put these children at risk for delays in emotional and cognitive development that can influence the course of their lives. Rosie's For All Kids Foundation is committed to helping these kids through grants and initiatives that, since inception, have helped thousands of children in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

In 1997, Rosie O'Donnell established Rosie's For All Kids Foundation, a nonprofit charity, to fulfill a childhood dream of helping kids in need. Since then, the Foundation has supported the construction of 27 childcare centers, known as Cutie PatootieTM Centers in low-income urban areas throughout the United States. The Foundation has also provided funding for childcare tuition subsidies, renovations, equipment, supplies, playground upgrades and staff development through the Early Childhood Care and Education grant program.

The Foundation also supports Rosie's Broadway Kids (RBKids), an arts education organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children through the arts. RBKids serves more than 5,100 students, teachers and their family members at 22 schools in New York City. Eighty percent of students are from low-income families. Using professional teaching artists, RBKids offers classes in dance and music and a professional theater experience for children who might otherwise not have the opportunity. Its goal is to inspire excellence, motivate learning, uplift the human spirit and instill a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
