Dozens of Broadway, TV and film stars will tend the bar at the annual "Celebrity Barte nding Night" at Frank's (410 West 16th Street, between 9 the and 10th Avenues) on Monday November 19 from 7PM-11PM.

Participating celebrities include: John Lloyd Young (Jersey Boys), Christopher Sieber (Spamalot), Donna Murphy (LoveMusik), Michael Arden (Times They Are A Changin'), Dana Fuchs ("Across The Universe"), Richard Blake (Legally Blonde), David Eigenberg  ("Sex and the City"), Jenny Powers (Grease) and her "Pink Ladies," Bree Williamson ("One Life to Live"),  Laurence St. Victor ("The Guiding Light"), John Driscoll  ("The Guiding Light"), Robert Clohessy ("Oz"), Michael Gladis  ("Madmen" on AMC), Robert Bogue ("The Guiding Light"), Ernest Waddell ("The Wire"), Robert Newman ("The Guiding Light"), John-Paul Lavoisier ("One Life to Live"), Murray Bartlett  ("The Guiding Light"), Josh Grisetti ("Knights of Prosperity" on ABC), Richard Belzer ("Law and Order SVU"), Matt Servito ("The Sopranos"), Mandy Bruno ("The Guiding Light").

All bartenders' tips will go to Stockings With Care and be used to buy holiday gifts for children whose families either live in homeless shelters or are in jeopardy of becoming homeless and cannot afford to celebrate their holiday.  Patrons are asked to make a donation at the door ($20 suggested donation).  A silent auction of Broadway show tickets, memorabilia, sports tickets, spa and restaurant gift certificates, and couture items will take place to raise additional funds.

Created by television casting executive Rosalie Joseph and producer Tom Fontana ("Oz", "The Bedford Diaries"), Stockings With Care grants the gift wishes of children while preserving the dignity of parents or caregivers.  In its 16th year, Stockings With Care works with various agencies that help families in crisis.  The children make their wish lists.  Social workers provide SWC with the name, gender, and age of each child.  Individual donors, corporations, and a small army of volunteers come together to purchase and wrap the gifts.  They are then delivered to the parents so that they can personally present the gifts to their children.  The parents are empowered, dignity is maintained and holiday magic is created.  Last year 3,000 children woke up to a miracle on Christmas morning.  Through Stockings with Care, each child found the gift they had wished for and each parent shared their joy.  For more information, please visit www.stockingswithcare.org
