Wong, Karen Olivo, and Alan Alda will participate in STAR TURNS: Great Writers Thank Their Lucky Stars!, a benefit for The Dramatists Guild Fund, honoring Rosie O'Donnell and Rosie's Broadway Kids, to be held at the Hudson Theatre in the Millennium Hotel on Monday April 20. Julie Halston will host the event, which will be directed by Dan Foster.

Cocktails will begin at 7:00 pm, with dinner at 7:30 pm, followed by the show at 8:30 pm. The stars will be introduced by the writers whose work they will be performing.

The annual gala event helps to raise monies for future generations of writers, writers in need, and many theater companies across the country that support and present the work of new American playwrights. The benefit also raises money to advance and improve the condition and welfare of persons engaged in the writing and creation of dramatic and other literary works for the theater and related arts.

Tickets begin at $1,000 per person. For information, call The Center for Creative Resources at 212-864-7827 or visit
