The 14th Annual Gypsy of the Year Competition — benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS — will be held on Dec. 9 and 10.

The 14th Annual Gypsy of the Year Competition — benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS — will be held on Dec. 9 and 10.

The Palace Theatre, now the home of Disney's Aida, will host the annual event, scheduled for 4:30 PM on Dec. 9 and 3 PM on Dec. 10. The competition comes after six weeks of intensive fundraising by various shows on and off Broadway as well as touring productions throughout the country. It's a chance to celebrate the Broadway gypsies while raising funds for the worthy organization.

Awards are presented in two categories: for best skit and for more money raised for BC/EFA. Last season, Mamma Mia! won the fundraising award, bringing in $174,088, topping The Producers ($144,331), 42nd Street ($143,515), The Phantom of the Opera ($125,355) and The Lion King ($124,325). Lion King, whose chorus members strutted to a dance music rendition of "America," took home the honor of being named Gypsy of the Year.

Tickets for this year's event, priced between $20 and $350, will be available after Dec. 3 by calling (212) 840-0770. For further information, visit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on the web at http://www.bcefa.org.
