Broadway Bebe Boutique

The New Normal star and Kansas City native Bebe Wood hosted her second annual Broadway Bebe Boutique on January 4th. The night of fun and fashion featured boutique shopping, tasty treats, silent and live auctions, and a fabulous show. The evening benefited Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, a New York-based non profit relying on the talents of the American theatre community to raise funds to support individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
