The 24th Annual GYPSY OF THE YEAR Competition, the culminating celebration of six weeks of fundraising by 51 participating Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies, raised $3,902,608 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Check out photos from inside the big event below!

The grand total was announced Tuesday, December 4, at this year's GYPSY OF THE YEAR, which included songs, original skits and dances performed by more than 200 of New York's best singers, dancers and musicians.

Since 1989, the 24 editions of GYPSY OF THE YEAR have raised a total of $52,934,581 to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Two-time Tony Award winner Chita Rivera (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) joined Katie Holmes (Dead Accounts) and Ricky Martin (Evita) in announcing the grand total to a standing-room-only audience at the New Amsterdam Theatre (214 West 42nd Street), home to Disney's Mary Poppins. The three actors presented awards to the top fundraising companies and to the best performances in this year's show.

This year’s top fundraiser was the national tour of The Book of Mormon, which raised $478,130.
