It’s safe to say the kids from the Stuttering Association for the Young are ready for their closeup. On January 22, SAY advocate Paul Rudd hosted the 6th Annual All-Star Bowling Benefit at Lucky Strike in New York City. Before you scroll down to see the incredible moments from the night, we recommend you brush up on the highlights from last year’s benefit, which included “Hamilton: The Musical” star Brandon Victor Dixon’s amazing rendition on a Rihanna song. (Seriously: it’s the best night ever.)
The 2018 #RuddBowling event was just as successful as last year’s. The event raised $70,000 for SAY, which will go to fund scholarships for their life-changing summer camp, speech therapy, and Confident Voices After-School & Weekend programs. SAY literally transforms lives through creativity, kindness, and big-time support. And while a big movie star hosted the benefit, here’s undeniable proof the real stars are the SAY team. See for yourself!
Check out the incredible SAY talent!
SAY’s Isabella takes on Paul Rudd for a “Hamilton” sing-off… And clearly wins. What an amazing voice.
Here’s the entire sing off shared on Instagram by a SAY supporter in case you want to watch Paul Rudd get schooled…
One of the best moments of the night. The SAY counselors performed “We Can All Be Kind” and we got the feels.

This is Harmony to the left of Paul Rudd. Look at the smile on her face and read her mom’s comments about SAY. You’re smiling too right now, right?
My big girl Harmony yesterday at the 6th annual #ruddbowling benefit for @sayorg – an organization that offers innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impact of stuttering including Camp Say, speech therapy and support groups! Harmony goes to Camp Say every year and absolutely LOVES it! I am so happy to have found @sayorg they have been so good to Harmony #sayorg #CampSay #paulruddbowling #Benefit #PaulRudd #AntMan #Marvel #Pic #picoftheday #Photo #photography #LuckyStrikeBowling #timessquare #photooftheday #Iphone #Bowling #Strike
