Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Bruce Springsteen, and Jujamcyn Theatres have announced that they are providing Broadway Cares additional access to the opening-night performance of Springsteen on Broadway on October 12, as well as the evening's exclusive after-party. Broadway Cares will allocate a portion of the proceeds from these newly released tickets to augment emergency grants currently being made to organizations providing immediate assistance after the devastating natural disasters that have ravaged communities in Florida, Texas, Mexico, and most recently, Puerto Rico.

The newly released tickets are being offered at two donation levels. A $10,000 donation secures one seat in the orchestra or front row of the mezzanine, while a $5,000 donation secures one seat in the rear orchestra or mid-mezzanine. Donations at either level include an invitation to the opening-night party immediately following the performance. The fundraising effort comes on the heels of last week's special auction for front-row opening-night seats, which sent proceeds to rebuild following Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Tickets are available now on a first-come, first-served basis exclusively at here.

"Throughout the year and certainly in times of despair, the Broadway community and Broadway Cares' donors consistently step up to provide for those in crisis," Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Executive Director Tom Viola said. "We are proud to partner with Bruce Springsteen and Jujamcyn Theaters to once again extend a much-needed helping hand to those impacted by these unprecedented disasters. Our community continues to respond to adversity not just with love and encouragement, but with tangible assistance to organizations providing immediate, on-the-ground support to those most affected by the wrath of these storms. The Broadway community consistently proves that what we do together makes a difference."

Springsteen on Broadway is set to run from October 3-February 3, 2018, at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
