The event had over 50 tables of Broadway mementos, collectible Playbills, and gifts for theatre fans to purchase. Nearly half of the $870,167 raised came from the merchandise tables, the top three of which were Association of Theatrical Press Agents and Managers (ATPAM) with $35,656, Hadestown with $29,940, and Beetlejuice with $19,831.
The day ended with a live auction, which raised $310,950. The two biggest items sold were a day at The Phantom of the Opera, including an onstage appearance, followed by a Hadestown package featuring lunch with De Shields and VIP house seats.
Broadway Cares President Tom Viola announced later that evening at the Broadway Back to School Gala that $10,000 of that amount raised will go to Educational Theatre Foundation. The 33 editions of the Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction have collectively raised $15.4 million.
