Broadway Belts for PFF!
Thank you for supporting Broadway Belts for PFF!
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s (PFF) 12th annual Broadway Belts for PFF! raised a record $475,000 in a new hybrid format on April 29. The sold-out gala at New York City’s Edison Ballroom, live streamed for the first time, is the single largest fundraiser for the PFF.
Rousing performances brought the audience to its feet with an A-list cast featuring Lillias White (Tony Award-winner for The Life, Tony nomination for Fela!), Robert Creighton (Fred and Adele Astaire Award-winner for Cagney, Frozen, TV’s The Good Fight), Jim Caruso (Six-time MAC Award-winner, Virtual Halston, Jim Caruso’s Cast Party, and Liza’s at the Palace…), Ann Harada (Outer Critics Award-winner, Avenue Q, Schmigadoon!, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella) and Beth Leavel (Tony Award-winner for The Drowsy Chaperone, Tony nominations for The Prom and Baby It’s You) and Ruby Locknar (BroadwayWorld Cabaret Award-winner, Virtual Halston, TV’s The Early Night Show with Joshua Turchin)
Tom Viola, Executive Director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA), was honored with the 2022 Ralph Howard Legacy Award. Viola, who has supported Broadway Belts for PFF! since it began, has contributed significantly to health and family service organizations nationwide.
Broadway Belts for PFF! was directed by Carl Andress (The Confession of Lily Dare, The Divine Sister) with Christopher McGovern (Cagney) as Musical Director. The benefit was produced for the twelfth consecutive year by D. Michael Dvorchak, Sue Frost (Memphis, Come From Away), Julie Halston, and Ed Windels.
“The success of Broadway Belts for PFF! will help us drive crucial research and provide vital resources to the pulmonary fibrosis community,” said William T. Schmidt, President and CEO of the PFF. “We are extremely grateful to Julie Halston, this year’s cast and crew for a blockbuster evening.”
