Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler raised more than $2.4 million for survivors of sexual abuse by hosting a Grammy Awards viewing party.
Steven, 69, held the viewing party for Janie’s Fund, a charity he founded to help provide resources to young women and girls who’ve been victims of physical and sexual abuse.
At the event, which was attended by Alice Cooper, Sharon Stone, Bo Derek, Caitlyn Jenner, Randy Jackson, and Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz, and was broadcast on Steven’s Facebook page, the Walk This Way singer performed a set of his biggest hits, including Janie’s Got a Gun, the track that gives his charity its name.
Writing on Facebook, Steven outlined his organization’s aims by saying, “We’re not here just to help a few girls beat the odds, but to radically change the odds for all girls.”
In total, the night’s festivities, which included a VIP reception, a dinner, and a charity auction raised more than $2.4 million for his charity.
