Morrison, O'Hara, Jackson, Set for Celebrity Bartending
Over a dozen Broadway, television and film stars will be featured in the annual "Stockings with Care Celebrity Bartending Fundraiser" at Frank's (410 West 16th Street, between 9th and 10 th Avenues) on Monday, November 13 from 7pm - 11pm.
Matthew Morrison (Hairspray, Light in the Piazza), Chris Meloni ("Law and Order SVU"), Diane Neal ("Law and Order SVU"), Kelli O'Hara (The Light in the Piazza, The Pajama Game), Cheyenne Jackson (All Shook Up), Michael Arden (Times They Are A Changin'), Angie Schworer (The Producers), Jenna Leigh Green ("Sabrina The Teenage Witch", Wicked), Meital Dohan ("Weeds"), Kristyn Ritter ("Gilmore Girls", "Veronica Mars"), Chrishell Stause and Justin Bruening ("All My Children"), Tom Pelphrey, John Driscoll, and Beth Chamberlain ("Guiding Light") and Zach Roerig ("As The World Turns") will join other stars of primetime shows, soaps, and Broadway in the event.
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. Patrons are asked to make a $20 donation at the door. A silent auction and raffle of Broadway show tickets (including Wicked, Spelling Bee, Chicago, and Rent), sports memorabilia, 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 15th 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, visit www.stockingswithcare.org .
