The 7 PM concert will be hosted by Finley, soon to be seen in the new Broadway musical The Wedding Singer. Among those scheduled to perform are Mamma Mia!'s Sara Kramer, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee's Kate Wetherhead, Little Women's Julie Foldesi and Jersey Boys' Michael Longoria as well as Ellyn Marsh and Charly Seamon.
