The fabulous Ricky Schroeder is participating in this year's Strip-a-thon for Broadway Bares XXII: Happy Endings. Although he has already raised well above his goal of $2000 for the organization, it wouldn't hurt to completely smash that goal and raise another $1000 for the year! You can find his personal donation page here. We have until Friday, the 15th of June to donate so get to it, folks!
Ricky was previously in the smash show ICONS, both off-Broadway and in Provincetown last year. He also took part in this year's Broadway Sings for Pride, a non-profit organization now in their second year which brings together the best of Broadway celebrities to share their stories of LGBTQI pride.
"On Saturday, May 19, 2012 Broadway Sings for Pride (www.BwayPride.org) in conjunction with the TADA! Youth Theater joined over twenty-five Broadway, Off Broadway, and National Tour performers to remind everyone "it gets better". The song, which included TADA!'s Resident Youth Ensemble, was done to promote equality and stop bullying. "It Gets Better" was written in 2010 by composers, Jay Kuo & Blair Shepard after a string of LGBT suicides across the country. This song will be featured in Broadway Sings for Pride's Second Annual Gay Pride Concert on Monday, June 25, 2012 in Manhattan."
