The evening of song and dance will serve as a fundraiser for the NYC Dance Alliance Foundation, which, since 2010, has awarded $8.5 million in college scholarships to hundreds of student dancers across the country (and this year alone awarded $3.4 million).
The Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala will begin at 6 PM with a pre-show cocktail reception, and the awards gala will take place at 7:30 PM and include performances from the Broadway and dance communities, as well as a special tribute to Zeta-Jones. A VIP after party will follow at 9 PM.
Zeta-Jones took home the Tony Award in 2010 for her performance in A Little Night Music and the Oscar in 2003 for her performance in the film adaptation of Chicago.
