Notable Moments: The vibrant and colorful evening kicked off with a DJ spinning, cocktails and light bites in the lobby of Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. When all were seated in the theater, the talented hip-hop dancers of THE BE KIND CREW led a dynamic show depicting aspects of their interactive school programs for all ages. The big moment? Honoree Jordan Rose joined the Crew for a performance before giving a beautiful and compassionate speech about the difference it makes when kids are kind to each other while navigating today’s complex world of in-person and online relationships. The call to action following her speech was incredible, as over $1M was raised to expand the Be Kind programs.
