About the upcoming event Brian Scott Frons, president of ABC Daytime, said in a statement, “The Walt Disney Company and ABC Television Network have a long standing commitment to community outreach. Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS is a remarkable organization. With this special night on Broadway, our goal is to once again raise awareness and substantial funds helping BC/EFA help those in need. Due to the overwhelming support from our fans, we are able to give back to them as well as the community at large.”
Last year’s event, which celebrated “All My Children”’s 35th anniversary, raised $250,000 for BC/EFA.
