On Sunday night, the Tony Awards honored Broadway legend Bernadette Peters with the Isabelle Stevenson Award. The Isabelle Stevenson Award recognizes an individual from the theatre community who has made a substantial contribution of volunteered time and effort on behalf of one or more humanitarian, social service or charitable organizations, regardless of whether such organizations relate to the theatre.

Peters founded Broadway Barks!, along with Mary Tyler Moore, as a program to promote the adoption of shelter animals. Broadway Barks! has evolved into an event that has not only focuses on the plight of homeless animals but had opened the door of communication and fostered a spirit of community among the numerous shelters and rescue groups working throughout New York.

Peters has also written two children’s books to benefit the charity – Broadway Barks and Stella is A Star. Additionally, Ms. Peters works with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Standing Tall, and Actors Fund of America.
