Ever wonder how Jason ends up doing all those charity galas?

From an article in The Ledger about the Shine a Light Gala (see sidebar–no, over on the right…yes, there!):

[…]Castro’s name came up during a meeting of the program’s advisory council to plan the fundraising weekend.

Hitchcock said she contacted Castro’s manager, who said the singer is deeply concerned about the sex-trafficking issue, and Castro quickly agreed to perform at the gala.
