BABY TV Presents - Protect A Hero: A Benefit Concert for The Afya Foundation

“Protect A Hero” is a benefit concert for The Afya Foundation, a medical supply recovery organization that is currently providing personal protection equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers at over 100 healthcare facilities in the New York area.

Afya has been responding to crises around the world for over eleven years. We deliver necessary medical equipment and supplies to those experiencing natural disasters, conflict, and other disruptions to healthcare systems. This time, the crisis is in our backyard as COVID-19 continues its assault on our community and those who protect us.

Since the onset of the crisis, we have delivered over 100,000 masks and 20,000 pounds of PPE and medical material to healthcare workers at underserved and vulnerable healthcare facilities, including over 15 federally qualified health centers and 40 community agencies. With audience support, we hope to expand our impact.

Money raised from this event will go directly to protecting healthcare workers across the state of New York. Although tickets are $5, there is an opportunity to donate more. With $25, Afya can supply a frontline healthcare worker with the equipment they need: masks, gloves, and gowns.

We hope you join us on Saturday, May 23 as we raise funds to protect New York’s healthcare workers and celebrate Brooklyn's rich community of artists and musicians!

Claud: Claud (fka Toast) is the solo project of Claud Mintz. Standing at 5 feet tall with turquoise hair (hair color subject to change), Claud enjoys late night snacks and going to the movies with their friends. In 2018 they released their debut EP inspired by dorm room mac n cheese, dreamy synths and a janky microphone. In the last few months you may have caught Claud on tour with The Neighbourhood, girl in red, Bleachers, or girlpool. You may have also caught them bopping around the streets of New York, usually with a warm beverage in hand.

Ale Campo: Ále Campos is an artist, event producer and performer living in Hudson, NY. Ále uses elements of drag, sculpture / installation and video to dissect the performance of identity and harness the tensions between reality and the fabricated world of fantasy. Their work has seamlessly woven itself and shape-shifted through bars/clubs and galleries in NYC and Hudson. In drag, they perform under the name “Celeste” - a sultry, emotional and raging alter-ego
