Below, BroadwayWorld brings you coverage of day two of the competition extravaganza!  Click here to view photos from day one.

Since the Easter Bonnet Competition began in 1987, the event has raised more than $49 million for Broadway Cares.  The company of The Lion King took top honors for bonnet presentation while Mary Poppins was runner up.

The special award for bonnet design was given to Mamma Mia!. The winning bonnet was created by Glen Russo, Rodd Sovar, Monica KapoorDon LawrenceLisa Brescia, and John Maloney. The Easter Bonnet Competition, directed this year by Kristin Newhouse, is the culmination of spring fundraising efforts for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS by company members of Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring productions. This year’s top fundraising award went to The Book of Mormon, which raised $286,725.

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 more than $195 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States. Broadway Cares awards annual grants to more than 400 AIDS and family service organizations nationwide and is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic. For more information, please visit Broadway Cares online at broadwaycares.org
