Falat Basket Project Kicks Off 25th Year

Mark Rylance, Joanna Lumley and David Hyde Pierce take a break from Broadway's La Bete to support Equity's Stephen J. Falat Holiday Basket Project, now celebrating its 25th Anniversary. Each year, merchandise (clothing, CDs, candy, toiletries, books and more) donated by corporations and individuals is gathered, packed into more than 3,500 colorful bags and delivered to over 20 hospitals, AIDS hospices, pediatric AIDS centers and HIV community services in the New York area for the holidays.

If you would like to help by making a donation, helping to fill the bags or deliver them, contact Anne Fortuno, Project Coordinator and Assistant to the President, (212) 8699-8530, ext. 409. Contributions may be sent to Equity, 165 West 46th Street, New York, NY 10036, Attention: Falat Basket Project.

Members of Equity's Stephen J. Falat Basket Project Committee are: Arne Gundersen, Chair; Joanne Borts, Austin Colyer, Jeanne Lehman and Jean-Paul Richard. .
