The 25th anniversary celebration of GYPSY OF THE YEAR, the culmination of six weeks of extraordinary fundraising by 56 participating Broadway, Off-Broadway, and national touring companies, raised an amazing $4,343,234 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The grand total was announced Tuesday, December 10, at this year's GYPSY OF THE YEAR, which included an array of original dances, songs, and skits performed by more than 250 "gypsies," the most talented singers and dancers in the ensembles of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.

Since 1989, the 25 editions of GYPSY OF THE YEAR have raised a total of $57,277,815 to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The impressive total was announced by surprise guest Daniel Craig, currently starring in Betrayal, who joined Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, who are performing No Man's Land and Waiting for Godot in repertoire, and Cherry Jones from the revival of The Glass Menagerie.

The company of The Lion King took honors for the best onstage presentation for a captivating dance of couples who skillfully integrated ropes to spin, twirl and jump to original music by cast member Bongi Dumas and directed by Ray Mercer. The cast of Newsies was runner-up as 16 exuberant young men from the show took to the air with explosive leaps in a contemporary dance piece choreographed by five members of the cast - Julian DeGuzman, David Guzman, Jacob Guzman, Evan Kasprzak, and Jess LeProtto.

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 $250 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States.
