Photo Coverage: Broadway Bears 2008

The 11th Annual Broadway Bears auction, presented by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, was held Sunday, February 17 at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on West 42nd Street.

Each year, "Broadway Bears: A Costumed Teddy Bear Auction" is a much-anticipated BC/EFA event, this year featuring over 40 specially-designed bears (often using actual material from their respective Broadway productions, and autographed by the stars).

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) is the nation's leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fund raising and grant making organization. BC/EFA is the on-going, committed response from the American theater community to an urgent worldwide health crisis. By drawing upon the talents, resources and generosity of this community, BC/EFA raises funds for AIDS-related causes across the United States. Since it's founding in 1988, BC/EFA has distributed over $100 million for critically needed services for people with AIDS, HIV, or HIV-related illnesses.
