Youk’s night to bring out Bobby V, Gavin DeGraw
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and performing artist Gavin DeGraw — he of “Not Over You” top-40 radio fame — are slated to spend Thursday night at the State Room in Boston in support of Kevin Youkilis.
The second annual Not Your Average Idol event supports Youk’s Kids, the charity Youkilis founded that supports and advocates for youth needs both in Massachusetts and in Ohio, where Youkilis is from, with a tremendous view of Boston’s harbor as the backdrop.
DeGraw headlines the musical performances, and the night is hosted hosted by Sarah Colonna and Josh Wolf of the TV show Chelsea Lately. There’s also a silent and live auction and food tastings from some of Boston’s top restaurants.
Tickets are $250 and $500 and can be purchased online at www.youkskids.org or by phone at (617) 964-9685 (YOUK). Doors open at 6 p.m., the program is scheduled to begin at 7.
