Wendy Williams has found a way to give back to those in need.

The Wendy Williams Show host has partnered her family’s charity, The Hunter Foundation with Facing Addiction with NCAAS to present Wendy Willams Hunter Birthday Give Back Gala on her upcoming birthday of July 18th! It will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

The launch will honor R&B legend, Chaka Khan with “The Survivor Award” for overcoming drug addiction and alcoholism.

In a statement, Williams said,

“I have seen addiction up-close. As a mother, wife, daughter, and friend, I cannot stand by and do nothing while there are people struggling to overcome substance abuse. Life is too short and we need to come together to help others.”

The inaugural fundraiser will be hosted by actress and comedian, Torrei Hart and will include performances from artists such as Keri Hilson, Johnny Gill, and PM.
