David Alpert (Broadway’s If/Then, A Journey to Bountiful, The Apple Boys) directs and produces the live performance sequence that helps Gilana’s Fund, which gives funding to non-profit organizations that assist acceptance and understanding. This 12 months’s recipients embrace the ACLU, The Matthew Shepard Basis, The Nationwide Girls’s Legislation Middle, and HIAS.
Ben Cameron (Depraved, Aida) hosted the occasion, which featured musicians Jason Wetzel, Gregg Monteith, and Kris Rogers.
Dwelling for As we speak was created by director-producer Alpert in 2008, a 12 months after the passing of his sister Gilana Alpert on the age of 26. Up to now, Gilana’s Fund has helped raised practically $100,000 and benefited quite a few non-profit organizations nationwide.
