Soap Stars Take Part in Final ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares
BC/EFA executive director Tom Viola said in a previous statement, "ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares has been a wonderful success and a favorite of daytime fans since its first incarnation at Town Hall in 2005. Since then six editions of this eagerly anticipated variety show featuring the most beloved and popular stars of ABC Daytime has raised over $1.6 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, allowing us with the support of the stars and fans to reach out to hundreds of thousands facing the challenges of AIDS and other serious illness. But even in such an exciting world, all good things come to an end. And while BC/EFA is sorry to call this the last due to our own event scheduling conflicts, we are proud to take a final, very special bow with our friends from ABC Daytime. Whether you have been in the audience before or have yet to join us, this year’s 'Grand Finale Celebration' will offer special performances and auction surprises sure to surpass anything done before. If you’re a fan of ABC Daytime you will not want to miss what promises to be an extraordinary evening."
