Photo Coverage: Daveed Diggs, Telly Leung & More Perform at BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF

The 6th annual BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! - a concert that raises much-needed funds for Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation - was held last night at the Edison Ballroom (240 W. 47 St.). Hosted by Julie Halston, performers included: Lisa Howard (IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU), Margo Seibert (ROCKY), Hunter Ryan Herdlicka (ONCE UPON A MATTRESS), Daveed Diggs (HAMILTON), Randy Graff (CITY OF ANGELS), Cady Huffman (THE PRODUCERS), Judy Kaye (PHANTOM OF THE OPERA), Telly Leung (ALLEGIANCE), and Robert Creighton (THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, CAGNEY).

An annual sold-out event that is a genuine New York experience, BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! was created by one of PFF's leading advocates nationwide, the beloved Broadway actress and comedienne Julie Halston in 2010. The event raises money to fight Pulmonary Fibrosis, an unforgiving, progressive disease that involves scarring in the lungs. With no cure, many live only two or three years following diagnosis.

BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! is directed by Carl Andress (THE DIVINE SISTER). Christopher McGovern(CAGNEY) serves as Musical Director, with musical supervision by Ed Windels. The benefit is produced for the sixth straight year by D. Michael Dvorchak, Sue Frost (MEMPHIS, COME FLY AWAY), Julie Halston and Ed Windels.

To date, BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! has raised nearly $500,000 for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, and is one of the largest annual fundraisers for the Chicago-based organization.
