Now in its 33rd year, the Broadway Flea and Grant Auction serves as a fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Last year’s iteration raised $870,167. Since 1987, the event has raised $15.4 million. The proceeds go to help those across the country affected by HIV/AIDS, COVID-19, and other critical illnesses by providing healthy meals, lifesaving medication, emergency financial assistance, housing, counseling, and more. The donations also support and champion organizations focused on social justice and anti-racism.
