“I believe in places like Stella’s Place that cater to those that are in that in-between stage of support. When people who are in need are put on a wait list, it gets worse and worse, and then sometimes it’s too late. Places like Stella’s Place are so vital. Letting people express themselves, being a part of this warm environment is amazing.”

Linkin Park Tribute Party hosted by Pink City

For two years in a row, Pink City has hosted a tribute party for Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington and donated the funds raised.

“We decided to fundraise at the event because we believe that part of healing is giving back to our community. We chose Stella’s Place specifically, because we wanted to give back to an organization that was inclusive and dealt with issues around mental health. We want to have a part in healing the city.”

Our cast and crew voted on which charity to support, and overwhelmingly chose Stella’s Place, due to their incredible mental health services for young adults. The importance of youth mental health resonated so strongly with our community that we are currently developing a new teen musical on similar themes.
