Bruce Springsteen Helps Broadway Cares Raise More Than $1 Million
Tickets to the opening night performance of Springsteen on Broadway were auctioned off for the organization.
Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS raised $1,030,000 from VIP auctions and sales of opening night tickets to Bruce Springsteen's Springsteen on Broadway.
Broadway Cares was given exclusive access to 200 front row, orchestra, and mezzanine tickets to the October 12 performance, along with passes to the after-party. The one-time fundraiser augmented $575,000 in emergency grants that were made this fall to organizations providing immediate assistance after the devastating natural disasters that have ravaged communities in Florida, Texas, and Puerto Rico.
Written and directed by Springsteen, the production features scenic design by Heather Wolensky, lighting design by Natasha Katz, and sound design by Brian Ronan. It runs through February 3.
