Photo Flash: Darren Criss, Tina Fey and More at 'VOICES FOR THE VOICELESS' Foster Kids Benefit

Tina Fey, Jane Krakowski, Darren Criss, Tituss Burgess, Megan Hilty and Caroline Rhea were just a few of the more than 1,000 people who supported youth in foster care at the "Voices for the Voiceless: Stars for Foster Kids" event last night at the St. James Theatre in New York City. Scroll down for photos!

The inaugural event, hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley with BeachBody.com, supported youth in foster care, particularly those ages 10 to 21 years whom many consider unadoptable because of their age. Proceeds benefitted You Gotta Believe, New York's only nonprofit specifically focused on finding permanent families for youth in foster care aged 10 years and older, and the Council on Adoptable Children (COAC). More than $500,000 was raised in support of older foster kids needing permanent families.

Additional performers and supporters for the evening included Lisa Lampanelli, Debra Monk, Andrea Martin, Santino Fontana, Lilla Crawford, Eden Espinosa, Tony Yazbeck, Rachel York, Ruthie Ann Miles, Jennifer Simard, Jose Llana, Christine Pedi, Barrett Foa, Kate Shindle, Howard McGillin, Janice Huff, Rachel Crow, Antwone Fisher, Charlene Tilton and Alec Mapa.
