The 20th Annual Flea Market & Grand Auction held on Sunday, September 24, raised a grand total of $505,832 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA).

The Flea Market and Grand Auction is an annual outdoor fair in which Broadway, Off-Broadway and other members of the theatrical community donate and sell their wares to benefit BC/EFA. The event also included the Celebrity Table, where celebrities gathered throughout the day to sign autographs and pose for photos in exchange for donations. The climax of the day was the Grand Auction, in which truly unique and priceless items are auctioned off live to the highest bidder.  Food was supplied by Tony's Di Napoli Times Square.

There were 56 tables stretched across Shubert Alley and West 44th Street. The booth that raised the most money this year was the booth hosted by the United Scenic Artists which raised $24,311. The show booth that raised the most money was The Phantom of the Opera. which raised $13,230. Dozens of Broadway and daytime stars made appearances on the patio at Junior's for the Autograph Table throughout the day.
