Corbin Bleu and Janet Dacal look on as Rebecca Cunarro receives a check from the In The Heights cast in NYC on Thursday night (July 29).
The ITH cast partnered up with CLEAR CHANNEL NY to award the very first “Graduate to New Heights Scholarship” to Rebecca who was surprised with the news at curtain call. She received $17,177.44 to continue her studies at Rutgers University. To read more of Rebecca‘s story, log onto BroadwayWorld.com!
Corbin, 21, was spotted out at the DKMS Swab Meet earlier this month which drew close to 2,500 people who were inspired by 11-year-old Shannon Tavarez, star of Disney’s The Lion King.
Shannon is still fighting leukemia and has yet to find a match. Corbin and Trent Kowalik were on hand volunteering with DKMS and also got swabbed in the hopes of becoming a match for Shannon or someone like her.
