A tribute performance, with artists to be announced, will also be part of the evening.
The gala will begin at 6 PM with cocktails with dinner and entertainment at 7 PM.
The Actors Fund is a national human services organization that helps everyone — performers and those behind the scenes—who works in performing arts and entertainment, helping more than 12,800 people directly each year, and hundreds of thousands online.
