Lolly's Locks is pleased to announce that Paul Shaffer, Musical Director of the Late Show with David Letterman, is confirmed to host its New York City Debut fundraising event on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at Marquee New York.
In addition to being a talented musician, comedian, actor and author, Shaffer is a lifelong philanthropist. His career has spanned Broadway, Saturday Night Live, various feature films, and has included collaborations with well-known artists, including Grand Funk Railroad, Diana Ross, B.B. King, Cyndi Lauper, Carl Perkins, Yoko Ono, Blues Traveler, Cher, Chicago and Robert Plant.
Paul Shaffer holds two honorary doctorate degrees, was inducted into the National Black Sports and Entertainment Hall of Fame, and was recently awarded a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame. He lives in the New York area with his wife and two children.
All proceeds raised from Lolly's Locks' New York Debut event will benefit Lolly's Locks wig recipients.
Lolly’s Locks is a 501(c)(3) charity named in memory of native New Yorker, Lolly Toll, a wife and mother of four who lost her battle against cancer in early 2012. During her illness, Lolly’s desire was to help more women get access to high-quality wigs, which are extremely expensive and often barely or not at all covered by insurance.
