2018 Tony Party for Animal Rescue!

Each year for the past 8 years I produce a Tony Awards Viewing Party and Fundraiser at the Stonewall Inn in New York and this year's event is June 10th. We watch the awards on the big screen, and during the commercial breaks, we have Broadway singers perform. Past performers include cast members from Wicked, Jersey Boys, Kinky Boots, The Book of Mormon, Anastasia and many more. Funds raised from the event go to local animal rescue groups. This year's beneficiary is Angels of Animals, a registered 501c3 New Jersey based rescue group.

As you can imagine, there are costs associated with putting on an event like this. Over the years, friends and colleagues have generously donated money and materials to help me: some have provided items to go into the prize baskets, while others have donated materials like the baskets themselves or helped cover printing and other supply costs. I am starting this GoFundMe as a way to offset those administrative and overhead costs.  The best way to think of it is that the money donated here will help me actually put on the event, so that more of the money raised the night of the event can go to help animals in need. Funds raised here will pay for things like printing services for posters, flyers, and programs; rehearsal space; hiring the musical accompanist; advertising; transportation; and various administrative costs.

Any GoFundMe balance remaining after overhead has been covered will go directly to this year's charity, Angels of Animals. 

This won’t be the only way to contribute. You will still have ample opportunities to win prizes, prior to and during the event!

ANY amount is appreciated but take a look at the reward levels for extra incentive!
