Attention New Yorkers! “Celebrity Bartending Night” @ Frank’s on Nov. 19th

This is an event that’s coming up next Monday. It will benefit the Stockings With Care organization which buys gifts for children whose families are homeless or close to being homeless and can’t afford to celebrate the holidays. If you’re in NYC head over and have a couple of drinks. Hey! A charitable reason to get nice and buzzed! The former bartender in me is quite happy to hear about this event 😉

Here is the info.

Broadway stars Donna Murphy, John Lloyd Young, Christopher Sieber, Michael Arden, Richard Blake, David Eigenberg, Jenny Powers and Robert Clohessy will take their place behind the counter at the annual “Celebrity Bartending Night” in New York City.

The Nov. 19 charity event will take place at Frank’s, located at 410 West 16th Street (between Ninth and Tenth Ave.), 7-11 PM.

Murphy (Wonderful Town), Young (Jersey Boys), Sieber (Spamalot), Arden (Times They Are A Changin’), Blake (Legally Blonde), Eigenberg (Take Me Out), Clohessy (Twelve Angry Men) and Powers (Grease) along with her “Pink Ladies” will participate in the event.

Also scheduled to appear are Dana Fuchs (“Across The Universe,” Love, Janis), Richard Belzer (“Law and Order SVU”), Bree Williamson (“One Life to Live”), Michael Gladis (“Mad Men”), Ernest Waddell (“The Wire”), John-Paul Lavoisier (“One Life to Live”), Josh Grisetti (“Knights of Prosperity”), Matt Servito (“The Sopranos”) and “Guiding Light” stars Murray Bartlett, Robert Bogue, Mandy Bruno, John Driscoll, Robert Newman and Laurence St. Victor.

All bartenders’ tips from the benefit will go to Stockings With Care, an organization that buys holiday gifts for “children whose families either live in homeless shelters or are in jeopardy of becoming homeless and cannot afford to celebrate their holiday,” according to a release.

A ($20 suggested) donation will be collected at the door. The evening will also feature a silent auction with prizes including “Broadway show tickets, memorabilia, sports tickets, spa and restaurant gift certificates, and couture items.”
