Julie Halston Hosts The Fifth Annual "Broadway Belts for PFF"
The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that Julie Halston will host the fifth annual Broadway Belts for PFF, a benefit for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, on Monday, February 23 at 7pm.

Ms. Halston has been a spokeswoman and activist for Pulmonary Fibrosis ever since her husband (broadcaster Ralph Howard) was diagnosed with the disease in 2008.

Directed by Carl Andress and Musical Directed by Christopher McGovern, the evening will feature some of Broadway’s biggest stars belting out showstoppers, including Annaleigh Ashford, Erich Bergen, Robert Creighton, Randy Graff, Patti Murin, and Betsy Wolfe. Over the past two years, this sold-out event has raised over $200,000 for the PFF, and has featured surprise guests such as Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey.

All funds go toward the Michael Kuchwara Fund for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Research, Education and Advocacy in honor of the late and beloved Associated Press theater critic and reporter.

Sponsorship opportunities and limited tickets are available at www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org/broadwaybelts or by calling PFF directly at 888-733-6741. A portion of each ticket purchase is tax deductible. For any questions regarding Broadway Belts for PFF or the work ofthe Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF), please contact 888-733-6741 or broadway@pulmonaryfibrosis.org.
