Attendees joined Tony Award-winning actress and comedienne Julie Halston for the 13th annual Broadway Belts for PFF! It was a spectacular evening of once-in-a-lifetime performances by some of Broadway’s biggest stars as they took the stage to raise funds and awareness for this devastating disease.
Attendees had two ways to participate in this year’s event:
Attend live at Sony Hall in New York City
Tickets included access to the pre-show cocktail reception, a three-course seated dinner, the performance, and an after-party.
Virtual attendees were invited to participate in an interactive program featuring pre-event activities and special opportunities for engagement throughout the gala.
2023 Ralph Howard Legacy Award Recipient: Robert Creighton
The 2023 Ralph Howard Legacy Award was presented to Broadway dynamo and PF advocate Robert Creighton (Cagney, Frozen, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Anything Goes, Chicago, The Little Mermaid, and TV’s The Good Fight).
Creighton, whose mother, Joan, passed away from PF at the young age of 59, has supported Broadway Belts for PFF! since its inception in 2010. Most recently, he devoted himself to helping the PFF transition to all virtual events during the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to his efforts in tandem with Julie Halston, the PFF successfully held Broadway Belts for PFF! and its national walk series in 2020 and 2021. Last year, Halston and Creighton raised a record-breaking $138,000 during the live auction at Broadway Belts for PFF! The pulmonary fibrosis community was thrilled to recognize Creighton’s generosity and longstanding support of the PFF.
