Marc Anthony is all about change.

The salsa singer, who is a strong supporter of President Obama's re-election campaign, helped raise more than $100,000 through his non-profit organization Maestro Cares. The profits of Monday night’s fundraiser, hosted in Chicago, will help build a new residence hall and learning center for over 200 children at an orphanage in La Romana, Dominican Republic.

The Maetro Cares Foundation was launched in January 2012 to help disadvantaged children across Latin America. “I’m blessed to be a part of this project,” said Anthony in a statement. “There are millions of children suffering throughout Latin America. Maestro Cares seeks to make a positive change for many of these children. I hope Maestro Cares will inspire others to do the same.”

The salsero is currently on the road for his U.S. Gigantes tour with Chayanne and Marc Antonio Solis, and will be performing in Houston, Texas on September 1.
