The 6:30 PM event begins with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and dinner, followed by Hoty's performance. Hoty, an Ohio native, began her professional career as a member of the repertory company at the Cleveland Play House. Hoty received Tony nominations for her work in Footloose, The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public and The Will Rogers Follies. She starred as Phyllis Stone in the Paper Mill Playhouse revival of Follies, and was most recently seen on Broadway in Mamma Mia! Her Broadway appearances also include City of Angels, Me and My Girl, Big River, The Five O'Clock Girl and Shakespeare's Cabaret. She will return to Broadway in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Bye, Bye Birdie in the fall.
