Stage and screen stars Wayne Brady, Melora Hardin, and Anneliese van der Pol headlined Concert For Victor: A Benefit, which was held at the Carrie Hamilton Theatre at The Pasadena Playhouse on Tuesday, September 13.

Performers also included Monika Beal, Todd Buonopane, Ava Gaudet, Julie Garnye, Devin Kelly, Charley Izabella King, Leigh Ann Larkin, and Jennifer Malenke.

The concert was a benefit for 23-year-old Victor Rodriguez and his family. In June 2011, Sacramento newlyweds Victor and Crystal Rodriguez went parasailing on the last day of their honeymoon in the Bahamas. At a height of approximately 200 feet their harness snapped, and they fell into the ocean. Crystal was killed, and Victor suffered severe injuries. Neither of them had health or life insurance. All proceeds go to the Rodriguez Family Care Fund.

Jordan Kai Burnett directed the evening, which she co-produced with Jonathan White.

Donations to The Rodriguez Family Care Fund can be made online at Melora Hardin's website,
