Theatre stars Matthew Morrison (Hairspray, The Light in the Piazza) and Anthony Mackie (A Soldier's Play) will join TV's Christopher Meloni ("Law and Order SVU"), Diane Neal ("Law and Order SVU"), Cameron Mathison ("All My Children"), Ted McGinley ("Hope and Faith"), Michael Cassidy ("The O.C."), Martha Byrne (As the World Turns), cast members from "Rescue Me" and others in tending bar at the annual Stockings with Care Celebrity Bartending Fundraiser at Frank's (410 West 16th Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues) on Wednesday, November 9, 2005 from 7pm to 11pm.

All bartenders tips will be used to buy Christmas gifts for children whose families either live in homeless shelters or are in jeopardy of becoming homeless and cannot afford to celebrate their holiday. A silent auction and raffle of Broadway show tickets, spa and restaurant gift certificates, and couture items will take place to raise additional funds.

Created by ABC/Touchstone Casting VP Rosalie Joseph and TV producer Tom Fontana (Oz), Stockings with Care "grants the gift wishes of children while preserving the dignity of parents or caregivers," according to press notes. In its 14th 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. 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.

A donation of
$10 is requested to be made at the door. For more information, please visit
