Support BC/EFA during the strike...


Every year at this time, theatres across the country join forces to support Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS with after-show pleas for donations and special merchandise sales. As you know Broadway stagehands are on strike and every week of fundraising lost to the cancelled performances is a loss of over $350,000 to BC/EFA. Last year's GYPSY OF THE YEAR fundraising raised over $3 million. Revenue normally raised from the in-theatre appeals prior to The GYPSY OF THE YEAR Competition makes up over 20% of BC/EFA's annual budget.

Broadway Cares provides support to The AIDS INITIATIVE; The Phyllis Newman WOMEN'S HEALTH INITIATIVE; A FREE HEALTH CLINIC and much more with The Actors Fund - an employee assistance program for the entire entertainment industry. Broadway Cares also makes grants to over 400 AIDS and family service organizations across the country - supporting food banks, health clinics and housing programs across the country.

I have signed up to help BC/EFA in its fundraising efforts, I hope you join me by contributing toward my goal or by joining a team yourself. Its a wonderful organization that has been caught in the middle of the storm.

Remember: What we do together, really does make a difference.

Support Me & Hairspray in the Gypsy of the Year Competition

Best, Christina

Re: Support BC/EFA during the strike...


It's really sad that Hairspray has only reached literally 1% of their goal. How do you go about giving money to the show for BC/EFA?

Re: Support BC/EFA during the strike...


Well, Im on the Hairspray team so if you click the link in the post above there will be a link at the top left that says "Support Christina" and it will take you to a page where you can enter in credit card information.

I know some people on this board may be young and may not have their own credit cards, but perhaps if you discuss it with your parents they might agree to a donation, and its totally tax deductible and can be as little as five dollars.

Alternatively, you can join the fundraising efforts like I have, and set up a fundraising page and goal asking your friends and family to donate in your name to the Hairspray team to support BC/EFA.
