Thirty years after the initial cases of the AIDS virus were discovered, humanity is still fighting the disease and searching for a cure. As with many devastating diseases, AIDS sufferers are largely out-of-sight, out-of-mind, with very few exceptions. On Saturday, August 17, an all-star cast will share their love of theater and their many talents in an effort to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Trillium Health (formerly AIDSCare).
Join two stage divas, Rochester actress Diane Chevron and Celebrity Housewife/popular drag queen Mrs. Kasha Davis, as they host "Give to Live Rochester," a benefit concert featuring performances of pop and Broadway tunes and comedy by Marc Cataldi, Jeff Clair, Dresden Engle, Robyn Fazio-Lasser, Erin Koch, Brian Maxwell, Matthew Mayne, Lauren MacDonough, Janine Mercandetti, Bethany Rahn, Michael Ciaccia, and Lauren Marron.
The concert will take place Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center's Hart Theatre (1200 Edgewood Ave.); a reception with refreshments and a silent auction will start at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 and available at the JCC box office or by calling 461-2000 or visiting jccrocheter.org.
