Updated: Easter Bonnet Competition: top fundraiser is "How to Succeed"

The 25th Annual Easter Bonnet Competition were Daniel presented awards, raised a remarkable $3,706,085 yesterday in NY, the result of six weeks of intensive fundraising for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS by 52 Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies.

The grand total was announced Tuesday, April 26, which ended in two star-studded, sold-out shows featuring side-splitting skits, original songs and dance numbers, and the highlights of the show: elaborate, custom-made bonnets from 17 of the participating productions.

How to Suceed in Business Without Really Trying was the top fundraiser!
