The Franciscan Friars presented our inaugural Night of Stars at SECOND FLOOR in New York City on October 1, 2018!
Night of Stars was conceived as a way to connect Holy Name Province with its own supportive constituents, those who want to participate in the mission of the Friars and help us continue our presence and work.
The evening featured performances by Broadway stars Arianna DeBose (Academy Award Winner, “West Side Story”), Mary Testa (Oklahoma!, Xanadu, Guys and Dolls), Ann Harada (Avenue Q, Cinderella), Jenn Colella (Come From Away), and Kate Baldwin (Hello Dolly, Big Fish). The evening was directed by Emmy Award-winner Lonny Price (Sunset Boulevard, Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill, 110 in the Shade, "Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened") and musically directed by Grant Sturiale.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Night of Stars raised over $400,000 for our Franciscan Ministries!
