Broadway Global shares the exclusive Broadway Cares event that raised 22K this week. "We support Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, because I personally know HIV infected friends on waiting list for HIV meds, and funding from Broadway Cares took these gifted individuals off those waiting list. Yes, funding allowed HIV programs to provide medications, which are needed to keep American's alive." BroadwayGlobal.
The loss in funding for Ryan White Program and other HIV programs like Broward House, programs that provide affordable options for those who can't pay for life saving meds, left many HIV infected American's on waiting list. Today I am happy to say that those close friends are now on medications because of Broadway Cares. Current Lena Horne like, Broadway star N'Kenge (Motown) performance is shared in this exclusive article, singing "Stormy Weather" but through the HIV storm of raising funds, this star studded event sheds light on Broadway Cares.
"TV, Broadway stars, and even AVMG's partner Ron Pobuda raised monies for HIV by hosting a special intimate Broadway Cares event which was directed by Frank Conway. The success inspires others around the globe to host parties of thier own. We challenge others in the arts community to do the same for HIV, Cancer, youth programs and arts education." BroadwayGlobal.
These open house "salon parties" are raising monies that help many HIV infected Americans survive. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS shares support to places like Broward House, or Ryan White program. Without daily incoming funding from numerous programs lives could not be saved. Funding is a daily battle to medications the large numbers of those living with HIV. Without Broadway Cares programs would not be able to provide medications that keep American's alive, teach and educate those to stay healthy, and provide studies to eradicate HIV forever.
Late Show famed musician Paul Shaffer and Broadway stars including N'Kenge (Motown), Telly Leung (Glee), and even Andrea McArdle, Broadway's original Annie all help just by attending this special fundraising event, an intimate salon party which raised new monies and hope for AIDS eradification.
