Summer Concert Series Raises $30K to Prevent Bullying

Concerts by Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald, Kristin Chenoweth, Vanessa Williams, Judy Kuhn, Indigo Girls and more in Provincetown and Martha's Vineyward.

Major musical talent came together this summer on Cape Cod to raise $30K for bullying prevention work done by the Tyler Clementi Foundation. Producer Mark Cortale organized a summer-long concert series to help raise funds for the Tyler Clementi Foundation with star-studded performances in both Provincetown and Martha’s Vineyard.

These performances raised an incredible $30,000 for the Foundation, which will be put towards the organization’s research-based, dynamic anti-bullying programming, such as #Day1 and the Tyler Clementi Institute for CyberSafety at the New York Law School.
