[dropcap]B[/dropcap]arbra Streisand joins the “cast” of the Broadway Legends Holiday Ornament series from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. As Fanny Brice from Funny Girl, dressed in her instantly recognizable red, white and blue sailor costume, the only singer to have number-one albums across the past six decades of her career is in good company—Julie Andrews, Carol Channing, Angela Lansbury, Liza Minnelli, Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera and Gwen Verdon have all been celebrated as the treasures they are. Tell Me More: The Original Christopher Radko Holiday Ornament, designed exclusively for Broadway Cares by artist Glen Hanson, stands six inches-tall. How Much: $60.
Other ornaments from the series that are still available in limited quantities include Liza in The Act, Julie in My Fair Lady and Gwen in Sweet Charity. Check out the many other stunning items in the organization’s “A Catalog of Giving” for 2015–2016.
Proceeds will help Broadway Cares to continue its mission of raising funds and making annual grants to more than 450 AIDS and family service organizations in all fifty states. With the support of the theater community, the organization has raised more than $285 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States since 1988. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic.
