GEMS Joins Sarah MacLachlan’s Lilith Fair
NYC concert will shine a light on America’s child sex trafficking crisis

Summer is officially here, and with it comes the return of the multi-city Lilith Fair tour created by Grammy Award-winning recording artist Sarah MacLachlan. With millions raised for worthy causes by previous tours, organizers this year challenged fans to vote for the local women’s charities that will benefit from proceeds at each tour stop.

We are thrilled to announce that Fuel partner organization GEMS has been selected to be the beneficiary of $1 from each ticket sold at the tour’s NYC-area show at PNC Bank Arts Center on July 31st. Staff and youth leaders from GEMS will also be on hand to provide info, t-shirts, buttons and other materials to the concert’s 15,000+ attendees.

With recent government reports estimating more than 100,000 American children victimized by sex traffickers, this forum to grow support and inspire action could not come at a better time. Fuel congratulates Lilith Fair for creating the “Choose Your Charity” contest and galvanizing so many artists and fans to make a real difference in the lives of women and girls.
