The Broadway Association, the 104 year-old not-for-profit that is committed to the betterment, safety and economic prosperity of the Times Square and Midtown West community, hosted its annual awards luncheon on Thursday, May 7 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square.
Cast members from the hit musical Gigi performed at the luncheon, including Corey Cott (Gaston Lachaille, Gigi), who sang the title song from the show, Steffanie Leigh (Liane d'Exelmans, Gigi) and Amos Wolff (Sandamir, Gigi). The Broadway Association also presentedCharlotte St. Martin, Executive Director, The Broadway League with the Excellence in Leadership Award and Tom Lewis, President, Transportation Ventures with the Lifetime Achievement Award. "Good Day New York's" Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto served as Masters of Ceremonies.
"Between Tom's operational knowledge of getting people to and from Times Square and Broadway setting the stage for another strong season thanks to Charlotte's tireless efforts, I couldn't think of two more well-deserving individuals to recognize and honor," said Cristyne Nicholas, Chairman of the Broadway Association. "They exemplify everything the Broadway Association stands for throughout its over 100-year history, and we look forward to another great year of promoting the West Midtown Community."
The Broadway Association also uses the luncheon as a platform to support a cause important to the district, and this year the Broadway Association made generous donations to The Silver Shield Foundation and the "Family First Nights" program of The Broadway League Foundation.
