Thank you from BC/EFA & Jersey Boys

Broadway_CaresThe following message is from the Spring Issue of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS [Behind the] Scenes magazine and includes a thank you to all who have helped Jersey Boys raise more than $6.2 MILLION dollars for BC/EFA.  Since many of our Local 769 members are included in that group ... consider yourself thanked!



Jersey Boys Celebrates 10 Years on Broadway

Oh, what a night it was on November 8 as the Tony Award-winning smash hit Jersey Boys celebrated its 10th anniversary and more than 4,300 performances on Broadway.  Dozens of current and former cast members gathered at the August Wilson Theatre to commemorate the milestone for a show that's proven that to reach out and care for others is to "walk like a man."  To date the Broadway company of Jersey Boys has raised more than $2.1 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.  With four national touring companies adding another $4.1 million, Jersey Boys' 10-year grand total tops $6.2 million.

Our sincere gratitude to the hundreds of theatre professionals onstage and off who have made this extraordinarily generous support possible.  Special thanks for Jersey Boys Producer Michael David and Production Supervisor Richard Hester, both BC/EFA trustees, with a salute to Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio who over the last 10 years have become good friends of Broadway Cares, sharing their legendary music and lending their presence, names and signatures to us time and again.
