Broadway Cares Fundraiser

A stunning fall day set the perfect stage September 25, 2016, as Broadway fans searched for endless theatre treasures and once-in-a-lifetime experiences at the 30th Annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction, which raised a record $782,081.

Everything we love about Broadway was all in one place as rare Broadway memorabilia and celebrities from the theater and performing arts and more wooed fans to Shubert Alley and West 44th and 45th Streets. The day-long celebration of all things Broadway featured 68 tables, 73 of the brightest stars on the Great White Way and 206 live and silent auction items.

I had a wonderful time with actors Derek Klena from Broadway's Wicked and TV's American Idol and with actor John Bolton from Broadway's Guys and Dolls, Dames At Sea, Spamalot, Damn Yankees, Pagaent and TV's Bluebloods, The Good Wife, Boardwalk Empire.  I loved meeting Bebe Neuwirth from Broadway's Addams Family, Little Me, Damn Yankees and TV's Blue Bloods, Cheers and Fraiser; legendary actor Ben Vereen from Broadway's Pippin, Hair, Jelly's Last Jam and Wicked; Richard H. Blake from Broadway's Jersey Boys, Aida, Rent, Legally Blondd and Hairspray; comedian and radio host Frank DeCaro;  actor Colin Cunliffe from Broadway's Finding Neverland, Pippin, Addams Family and Evita; Ron the Gay Republican puppet from Broadway's Avenue Q and many others.

Kings & Cowboys Birthday Soiree

I loved making a special appearance at the "Kings & Cowboys" 16th annual Birthday Bash soiree of the original Cowboy of the Village People Randy Jones and actor/promoter and "King of New York" Keith Collins at the exclusive nightclub Troy Liquor Bar in the hip Manhattan meat-packing district of Greenwich Village in New York City on September 17, 2016.  It was also the release party for Randy's latest hit single "Mister Right." Had a ball mingling and partying with Randy, Keith, actor Gerald McCullouch of the hit CBS TV series CSI:Crime Scene Investigation, Olympic Gold-Medal Figure Skating Champion Rob Shmalo, Celebrity Chef Stephen Daniello, Celebrity Stylist Albert Crocus Pena, Andy Sween from Men's Fitness and Cosmopolitan magazines, Cabaret legend Bobbi Horowitz and many others.
