You may know the brand MWearNYC, but did you know the master mind behind the amazing underwear brand also helps design costumes for Broadway Bares? If you are unfamilar with the show it’s that broadway performers put on to raise money for Broadway Cares, Equity Fights Aids.
Matthew says this about the fundraising:
Broadway Bares, now in it’s 28th year, is the largest annual fundraiser produced by and benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. It’s a large scale burlesque strip show made up of 200 of Broadway’s hottest dancers, designers and choreographers who all volunteer their time and talents to produce this one night, 2 performance event that raised $1.9 million last year alone.
The money we raise will help provide lifesaving medications, nutritious meals, health care, counseling, emergency financial assistance and so much more to men, women and children in all 50 states living with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses.
Broadway Cares also is the single largest financial supporter of the essential social service programs of The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts.
I have been apart of this organization and event for the past 7 years as a costume designer. This year I am designing the costumes for the sexy sailors in the Battleship number for Broadway Bares: Game Night! Wanna Play?
