Nothing Like A Dame
I had the privilege of making a special appearance at the Nothing Like a Dame benefit last night with a line up of Broadway divas. The Actors Fund presented an all new edition of the popular "Nothing Like a Dame" benefit concert series on Monday, June 15, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues) All proceeds from "Nothing Like a Dame" benefited The Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative. For has last 14 years, The Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative (PNWHI) has assisted more than 2,000 women coping with critical health concerns including breast, cervical and ovarian cancers, as well as domestic violence, chemical dependency and mental health issues. Through the auspices of The Actors Fund, PNWHI has provided millions of dollars in emergency financial assistance to women in crisis in the entertainment industry.
