"From Broadway With Love" Benefit Concert for Orlando (July 25, 2016)
Wow! The "From Broadway with Love" benefit concert raised $60,000! That's truly impressive. I just idolize Seth Rudetsky for so often working with others to raise funds for those in need of support. And how wonderful that tickets to the concert were provided at no cost to employees of the Pulse night club, and others affected by the mass shooting.
From Broadway with Love Concert Raises Thousands; Recording Available for Pre-order
The July 25 concert From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert for Orlando, which brought together some of Broadway’s biggest stars to support the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, Hope and Help Center and Zebra Coalition, raised more than $60,000 via ticket sales and an online auction.
The concert, which sold out within two hours of tickets going on sale, took place at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Over 300 tickets were provided at no cost to Pulse employees and others who were affected by the mass shooting that occurred at Pulse nightclub June 11.
A live recording of the event, available on CD, DVD and Blu-ray, is available for pre-order at broadwayrecords.com.
The CD/DVD/BluRay is going for $29.95, and will be released early Fall 2016.
"Net proceeds raised from the performance (royalties and artist fees waived) by From Broadway With Love: A Benefit Concert For Orlando will be donated equally between the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida, Hope and Help Center of Central Florida and Zebra Coalition."
