Jenna Masi, Annie Schulenburg, Allison Benoit, Kelli Bruno, and Allison Gibson have performed together for 8 years, starting from when they met at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. They are also members of the New York City-based A Capella group, Street Ready. Annie, Jenna, and Allison are running the New York City Marathon on November 5th to support Team For Kids, a group that brings free running and fitness programs to students across the country through school-based programs, free youth events, and a collection of digital resources.

Annie Schulenburg will be joined by her former piano teacher, Cinder LeDell of Basking Ridge, who will be playing two of her recent piano compositions.  Another of Cinder's students, Joshua Narsu, also of Basking Ridge, will entertain guests as they arrive, as well as performing during the program. Allison Benoit will be joined by her mother, Nadine Benoit, for a special mother–daughter duet.

The performers will also be joined by Angela Rose Masi, a New Jersey-based actress and private voice teacher based in Basking Ridge. Favorite roles include Eve (Children of Eden), Kate/Lucy(Avenue Q), and Schwarzy (25th…Spelling Bee).
