Cancer Support Community Gala to Honor Marin Mazzie & Jason Danieley; LaChanze to Perform!
Just announced, Broadway couple Marin Mazzie and Jason Danieley will be honored at the Cancer Support Community's 2016 Spring Celebration. As BroadwayWorld previously reported, three-time Tony Award nominee Mazzie is currently in remission after her battle with ovarian cancer.
The elegant evening on the Hudson River is set for Thursday, April 14, 2016 at The Lighthouse at Pier 61 in New York City.
The Spring Celebration, the Cancer Support Community's signature event, is a gala celebrating the accomplishments of heroes in the cancer community while raising vital funds to advance CSC's mission-to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community. Each year, the Spring Celebration is inspired by a particular flower. This year's event is inspired by the rose, which symbolizes love, beauty and courage.
The 2016 Spring Celebration will feature musical performances from Tony award-winning Broadway star LaChanze and master of ceremonies Jack Ford, CBS News Legal Analyst.
