Over 33,000 people watched our Sordid Livestream in 2020! We had over 660 individual donations that raised over $50,000 and the auctions raised over $25,000! 100% of the proceeds were split evenly among the 23 non-profit theatre partners of the Foundation. We sent out checks totaling over $3,000 to each of these incredible theatre companies as our contribution these companies survived the pandemic to continue their vital work in their communities.
In April near the beginning of the pandemic, Del had a conversation with the artistic director of one of the foundation's theatre partners. They explained that the challenges of the pandemic have put their company's viability in jeopardy. Since Del started his career in, and always returns to, the theatre, he was inspired to figure out a way to use our skills to do something to help theatre companies and also provide entertainement. This livestream benefit reading was the result of that. All of the stars we asked from across the Sordid franchise said an immediate yes!
