broadway cares and me...

sunday night was the 19th annual BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS fundraiser called "broadway bares."  it's a sexy, variety and burlesque show featuring the best of broadway dancers, and a few stars.

this year included appearances by allison janney (the west wing, away we go), sutton foster (shrek: the musical, flight of the conchords), and mo rocca (VH1 best week ever, NPR wait wait, dont tell me).  i volunteered backstage and was fortunate enough to see mo sans shirt.  not bad!

the fleshy event raised a whopping $808,819, which all goes to broadway cares/EFA!  a great success, but still down from last year's $874,372.  is it the economy?  people just don't have the extra cash to donate to such a great cause?

my feeling is, if you don't have the money to donate to your favorite cause (children, animals, cancer research), find a way to donate your time!
