While The Woodlands gears up for the April 24  concert starring Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, the dynamic duo has decided to join forces to highlight a Houston-area organization in their Cheek to Cheek tour.

Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and Bennett’s Exploring the Arts foundations have partnered up to highlight organizations that “demonstrate excellence in empowering young people to become compassionate, creative, and brave,” according to a press release.

The Woodlands concert and a stop in Austin on April 23 were among tour dates selected to participate in this fundraiser.

Gaga and Bennett are encouraging exceptional youth-centered Houston nonprofits to submit information about their impact by the April 7 deadline. 

 The two organizations will auction off a pair of concert and meet and greet tickets on Charity Buzz, and proceeds will go to the nonprofit organization that is selected. The concert will also honor the outreach done by the group, bringing exposure to the fans in attendance. The nonprofit will receive a promotional table for materials to spread awareness with the concert goers. 

With the concert date approaching, Gaga and Bennett are encouraging exceptional youth-centered Houston nonprofits to submit information about their impact by the April 7 deadline. Non-profit organizations interested in participating can apply at exploringthearts.org/cheektocheek.

Winners will be announced on April 10.

Both Gaga and Bennett are known for their history of community outreach. Exploring the Arts was started by Bennett and his wife with the mission to impact young people through arts education. ETA has partnered with many local organizations throughout New York City and Los Angeles, working to achieve this goal.

Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 with the mission to empower young people to create a better world and has also partnered with over 50 other organizations.
