Photo Coverage: Nothin' Like a Dame Benefit

‚Äč
Over two dozen divas, leading ladies and ingenues shared the stage of Nothin' Like a Dame, the 11th annual concert in the series presented by The Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative of The Actors' Fund of America on March 6th at the Imperial Theatre.

This year's starry Nothin' Like a Dame raised $300,000 for The Actors' Fund, the only national non-profit organization that provides for the social welfare of all entertainment professionals. Since 1996, The Actors' Fund has focused on helping women in the industry who are coping with critical health concerns through The Fund's Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative. Initiated by Actors' Fund Trustee Newman, the Women's Health Initiative offers a roster of services to help women access health care and to coordinate support services.
