What an incredible year it has been for the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. It’s exciting to see our mission of inspiring today’s youth through entertainment and education-focused initiatives continue to expand in children’s hospitals across the country. See below for our top highlights from 2023.
This year, RSF continued to provide technical upgrades for our Seacrest Studios across the country. With many studios celebrating or approaching their 10-year anniversary, the foundation replaced camera equipment, music-scheduling software, microphones, editing systems, software and more. We will continue to make it a priority to maintain and support all our existing studios for years to come.
Josh Williams Hospital Tour
Longtime supporter and NASCAR driver, Josh Williams, continued his children’s hospital tour by visiting many of our Seacrest Studios in 2023. At each visit he collected patient handprints, which were later digitized and featured on his race car during championship weekend in Phoenix, AZ.
Restless Road + Friends album release party at The Listening Room
Restless Road, RSF Celebrity Ambassadors, celebrated the release of their debut album by hosting a writer’s round at The Listening Room. All ticket sales benefited the foundation and attendees learned how Seacrest Studios has impacted the band and their families personally. We are grateful for the creative ways they continue to support us.
Ed Sheeran returns to Seacrest Studios at Children’s Hospital Colorado
A patient-favorite, Ed Sheeran, returned to our Denver studio for a special visit and performance with patients and families. Several patients had the opportunity to interview Ed on-air, giving them a real-life host/DJ experience.
Barbie has a great day everyday… especially in Seacrest Studios!
2023 was the year of Barbie and Seacrest Studios joined in on the fun! The Mattel Foundation visited our studio at CHOC in Orange County and hosted Barbie-themed Bingo for patients. In conjunction with Love Your Melon they provided Barbies, beanies, bucket hats and more for prizes. The fun-filled day reminded young patients of Barbie’s famous words, “you can do anything!”
