The New York Hall of Science in Queens was buzzing with excitement last night! Futures in Education held their Angel Program reception that was attended by hundreds of students, their families, and Angel sponsors. It was an amazing opportunity to bring the students and their donors together to meet face to face.

Broadway Stages has been a longtime supporter of the Futures in Education Angel Program that allows less fortunate children in Brooklyn and Queens to receive a Catholic education. This year, Gina Argento was the Angel to four children, subsidizing the cost of their Catholic grammar school tuition.

"It's a privilege to play a role in the lives of these children, and helping them expand their knowledge and love of learning," Gina said. The Angel Program provides access to an excellent education for those who need a helping hand."

Any family with a child or children grades K-8 registered in a Catholic elementary school or academy in Brooklyn or Queens that can demonstrate financial need of tuition assistance may apply. To learn more about Futures in Education and the Angel Program, click here.

Join Us in Donating Prom Dresses and Suits

Broadway Stages Boutique (Donations requested by May 20)
Drop Off Box Located at:
Broadway Stages
203 Meserole Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222


For pick up request please email: monica@broadway-stages.com

It's prom season, and the Broadway Stages Boutique is open and awaiting your donations! We are looking for gently used, prom appropriate evening dresses, gowns, and men's suits. We are hoping to bring big "Brooklyn" smiles to those less fortunate who want to attend this milestone event. For many who want to go to their prom, the price of the ticket alone is too much. When you add the cost of a dress or suit and all the extras it can become completely unaffordable.

So, while you're doing your spring cleaning, please consider donating any prom appropriate attire (for women or men), that has been hiding in the back of your closet. You will be helping someone deserving to attend their prom in style.

Please contact monica@broadway-stages.com to schedule a pick up or drop off your donations at Broadway Stages headquarters located at 203 Meserole Ave., Brooklyn, NY no later than May 20, 2019.

Donations from Broadway Stages will be distributed across Brooklyn. The date and location for distribution will be provided as soon as details are finalized.

"Broadway Stages has a long history of giving back; it's just part of who we are and what we do. Our commitment to be a good neighbor means lending a helping hand whenever we can, and that's what we're doing with our prom dress and suit drive. The excitement of high school prom is something that takes us all back to a milestone moment. For those excited about attending, the challenge of affording a ticket and the required attire may prevent them from participating in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. We hope that our prom dress and suit drive will allow underprivileged young women and men to attend their prom in style. Building a sense of community and providing to those less fortunate is a passion of Broadway Stages, and we invite the community to join us by donating gently used prom style dresses and suits. Together we can help bring a smile to deserving students." - Monica Holowacz, Director of Community Relations, Broadway Stages, Ltd.

Stay Warm This Winter – Coat Giveaway Dec. 18

Broadway Stages, in cooperation with the 79th Precinct, is hosting a coat giveaway on Tuesday, December 18 beginning at 2:00 p.m. Coats will be distributed to children and adults in need, without charge, discrimination, or obligation.

Each fall, just before we feel the first nip in the New York air, Broadway Stages begins to collect coats for children and adults in need. Collection boxes are placed at our facilities across New York City where many of our local vendors, businesses, contractors, employees, and neighbors graciously donate coats. Broadway Stages also purchases several dozen coats each year to kick off the spirit of giving and augment the coat drive. This year the 79th Precinct has graciously opened their doors as the distribution location. We thank them for their cooperation, their time and effort, and support of our shared and beloved community.

Stay warm this holiday season and throughout the winter. If you or someone you know needs a coat to get through the winter, please stop by the 79th Precinct at 263 Tompkins Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11216 on December 18. For more information about the distribution, or to make a donation, please contact monica@broadway-stages.com.

St. Stanislaus' "Get to the Point" 5K Hits the Mark!

 
 

After carbo-loading at the pre-race "Pasta Party" on Saturday, October 13, participants in the St. Stanislaus "Get to the Point" 5K were raring and ready to go on race day. The autumnal nip in the air set the stage for a fun-filled Sunday that began with the children's dash races, followed by the 5K run/walk, and the award ceremony. As the photos show, it was a day of fun and fellowship. As title sponsor, Broadway Stages is grateful to those who participated and donated to the event; the money raised goes a long way in advancing education and building community.

Get your running shoes on and come out to support St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy! Broadway Stages is the title sponsor for the 25th anniversary of the "Get to the Point" 5K Run/Walk, that will take place on Sunday, October 14, 2018. This year, Broadway Stages is also the benefactor of a pre-race "Pasta Party" on Saturday evening, October 13.

Event Chairman and Race Director Frank P. Carbone is excited to bring back the race this year and promises that it will be better than ever. The event, which was first held in 1992, has grown steadily over the past three decades. This year, over 500 participants are expected to compete in the highly popular children's dash and 5K run. Adults, children, and families of all ages are invited to join in this year's festivities. All proceeds from the event will be used to benefit the St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy, a local school with over 200 students serving grades pre-K3 through eight in the Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and Long Island City communities.

Broadway Stages, New York's premier film and television production company, is thrilled to be the title sponsor for this year's race. The company's President and CEO Gina Argento strongly believes in giving back to the community by supporting educational causes and local businesses and engaging in positive environmental practices. As a company with local roots, Broadway Stages understands the needs of its community and the importance of giving back.
