“The Broadway community stands together in solidarity with those affected by pulmonary fibrosis,” said Julie Halston. “Join us for an evening of extraordinary entertainment and meaningful contribution to an absolutely vital cause.”

Since its inception, Broadway Belts for PFF!, has raised over $3 million for PF research and support programs. With more than 50,000 new cases diagnosed annually, increased funding and awareness is more important than ever.

The 2024 Ralph Howard Legacy Award will be presented to the Hales Family Foundation. Thomas Hales, the late New York banking CEO, was diagnosed with PF, received a life-saving double-lung transplant in 2007, and became a passionate supporter of the PF community for more than a decade. His enduring legacy, carried forward by his wife, Alice Marie, and their six children, continues to shape the PFF’s trajectory. Thomas was a Board Member Emeritus of the PFF and instilled a commitment to the organization in his family. His son, Terence Hales, now a PFF board member, launched the PFF Walk New York City, celebrating its 16th year in 2024 and raising more than $1.4 million for the cause. The PF community proudly acknowledges the Hales Family’s unwavering support, embodying the spirit of the Ralph Howard Legacy Award

Broadway Belts for PFF! is directed by Carl Andress (The Confession of Lily Dare, The Divine Sister) with Christopher McGovern (Cagney) as Musical Director. The benefit is produced for the fourteenth year by D. Michael Dvorchak, Sue Frost (Memphis, Come From Away), and Julie Halston. To purchase tickets and for more information about Broadway Belts for PFF!, visit broadwaybeltsforpff.org.
