Julie Reiber & Romelda Teron Benjamin Scheduled to Perform for Charity

Julie Reiber & Romelda Teron Benjamin, two highly sought-after Broadway actresses and singers, will be performing for Lakeland Regional Health's annual Philanthropist & Advocate of the Year event on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the Hollis Cancer Center in Lakeland, FL. They will be singing with students from the Harrison Center for the Visual and Performing Arts.

"It always feels great to give back and perform for a great cause. And especially when you get to sing with kids. I'm looking forward to that," said Julie Reiber in anticipation of her trip to Lakeland, Florida.

Ms. Reiber is currently thrilling audiences in the Broadway hit Come From Away. She has also starred on Broadway in productions of Wicked, Newsies, All Shook Up, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Brooklyn the Musical.

"Giving back is a big part of being in arts," Said Benjamin. "It's an honor and a privilege for me to give back the best way I how, my time and talent."

Ms. Benjamin began her professional career in the national tour of Smokey Joe's Café and followed by the role of Sister Chantelle in Bare: A Pop Opera, the Off - Broadway production. She has appeared in the Original Broadway Cast of Brooklyn the Musical.

"We are so pleased to have both Julie Reiber and Romelda Teron Benjamin helping us celebrate this important event," said Timothy Boynton, Vice President/Chief Development Officer, Lakeland Regional Health Foundation, who has Broadway ties himself.

Boynton spent time working with the Original Broadway Cast of Brooklyn the Musical where he met and became fast friends with both Reiber and Benjamin. "Now that I stepped out of my work in NYC, and stepped into healthcare, I always try to incorporate a little bit of my passion for Broadway into my fundraising events," said Boynton, who started at Lakeland Regional Health in 2013.

This year's event will honor Sal & Jean Campisi as the Philanthropist of the Year and Dr. Matt Smith as the Advocate of the year.
