International humanitarian organization Save the Children will be holding its "Centennial Gala: Changing The World for Children” in New York City on Sept. 12, and the organization announced on Friday (Sept. 6) that Little Big Town will be performing at the event.

“For the past 100 years, Save the Children has worked tirelessly to advocate for the world’s most vulnerable children,” Little Big Town said in a press statement. “We’re so pleased to be a part of this momentous anniversary, and can’t wait to celebrate these honorees on this special night. To help highlight this organization and the lives they have changed with music is truly an honor.”

Little Big Town will join previously announced honoree Camila Cabello, who will be honored with the Voice Award. The NYC gala, co-hosted by Hoda Kotb and Willie Geist, will take place at the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom and will include Co-chairs Catherine Oppenheimer and Tracy Stuart. Fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger will receive the Humanitarian Award at the event, honoring his dedication to uplifting the lives of others through the Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation, which has worked to empower America's youth through education and cultural programs for more than 24 years. In addition to working closely with Save the Children, Hilfiger works with a variety of other charities, including Autism Speaks, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis, the Ernie Davis Community Center and the Washington D.C. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation.

In 100 years, Save the Children has helped more than one billion children, reaching 134 million children in 2018 alone. 

The organization will also host a second centennial event on Oct. 2 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Hosted by Jennifer Garner, the event will honor The Walt Disney Company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Iger with The Centennial Award.
