Make A Wish Foundation Selected as 2012 Charity Recipient

Thank you to everyone who celebrated my birthday with me Saturday night at SoHo Playhouse. I had a blast performing my hit Off Broadway show Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer and even more fun choosing a fan’s favorite charity to receive a $100 donation in her honor.

We had many worthy entries. I’m thrilled to know my audience members are devoted to so many wonderful causes. Thanks to DeAnna for entering the Make A Wish Foundation, which was selected to receive $100 in her name. Kudos DeAnna. The check will be mailed this week. Make A Wish Foundation is dedicated to making sick children’s wishes come true.

Other entries for the birthday charity giveaway included a stellar wish of local and national nonprofits. Many of the charities revolved around diseases, finding cures for them or providing services for those with them. I received entries for the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and God’s Love We Deliver.

Given the recent needs of New Yorkers due to Hurricane Sandy, the Salvation Army received a number of nominations. Other organizations that help those in need include the Red Cross, UNICEF, and Doctors Without Borders. Other votes were recorded for Making Headway Foundation, which supports people with brain of spinal cord tumors and their families; APEX, the Asian Professional Exchange; the Gabriel Project, which provides pregnancy counseling. Two animal organizations — Best Friends Animal Society Utah and the ASPCA — were entered.

Rounding out the organizations were the Cardozo School of Law, The National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City, Inc. the Hunger Project, Rye Youth Council and the Evansville Area Council of PTAS .

Thank you to all who entered and a big congrats to DeAnna and the Make A Wish Foundation for winning!
