Broadway Bares XX: Strip-opoly


We now take a break from our usual judgmental snarkiness to talk about.... stripping.

On Sunday, June 20, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS will host Broadway Bares XX: Strip-opoly at New York City's Roseland Ballroom. This hotly anticipated annual event combines the naughtiness of burlesque and the razzle-dazzle of Broadway and has been a smashing success since its inception in 1992. The event features the hottest male and female dancers on Broadway baring it all to raise money to help men, women and children who are struggling with HIV and AIDS.

And it just so happens that I know one of these charitable hot dancers!

Aaron J. Libby will not only be taking it all off for charity (for the second year in a row), but has also been fundraising on his own. Having almost hit his original fundraising goal of $500 (at present, he is at $480), Aaron has bumped it up a notch and raised his goal to $1000. A daunting task indeed, but not an impossible one. If 100 people donate $1, that's $100 right there. All donations of $250 or more are tax deductible - and who doesn't love a little tax rebate?

You can donate to Aaron's fund, and find out a little more about Broadway Bares, at  www.broadwaycares.org/aaronjlibby.

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations.  By drawing upon the talents, resources and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 BC/EFA has raised over $175 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.
