Produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the yearly fundraiser will be held in Shubert Alley (located between 44th and 45th Streets and between Broadway and Eighth Avenues). Festivities will begin at 3 PM with a meet-and-greet of adoptable pets; from 5 PM to 6:30 PM, the available pets will make their way to the stage with a mix of Broadway favorites.
Celebrities taking part in the event, free and open to the public, will be announced at a later date. Last year, Peters hosted alongside her Hello, Dolly! co-star Victor Garber.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theatre community, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States since 1988.
