Benefit for Victims of Child Sex Trafficking Will Be Held at Broadway's Finding Neverland

News   Benefit for Victims of Child Sex Trafficking Will Be Held at Broadway's Finding Neverland
 
An inaugural fundraiser to benefit Alliance To Rescue Victims of Trafficking (ATRVT) will be held March 21 at the new Broadway musical Finding Neverland, a story about how Peter became Pan.

Alliance To Rescue Victims of Trafficking, a Washington D.C. foundation established to help rescue victims of child sex trafficking, was established in 2014 by author and journalist Conchita Sarnoff, who serves as executive director.

The mission of ATRVT is to "rescue and rehabilitate sex-trafficked victims in North America, to establish the first 'safe house' for girls who have been trafficked for sex and to raise awareness for what has been described as 'the largest slave trade in history.'"

The March 21 benefit event includes a pre-show VIP cocktail reception at New York's Le Cirque Restaurant (151 E. 58th Street) at 5 PM, followed by transportation to Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 W. 46th St.) for VIP seating at the 8 PM performance of Finding Neverland.

The new musical stars Tony and Emmy Award nominee Matthew Morrison ("Glee") and five-time Emmy Award winner Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier) under the direction of Tony Award winner Diane Paulus.

The musical, opening April 15, is based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, and follows playwright J.M. Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer — and the man — he yearns to be. For more about the Alliance To Rescue Victims of Trafficking, visit ATRVT.org.
