Bette Midler-themed show will benefit Sandy-wrecked trees
A tribute to Bette Midler will benefit greenery lost to Sandy tomorrow night with performances and a silent auction.
Lips, the drag-show dining spot, is hosting a charity event to benefit victims of the October storm.
The event, called “After Sandy – A Night of A Thousand Midlers,” will be a nod to Midler’s career, with performances of her most famous songs by the performer Ginger Snapt.
All revenue will benefit her nonprofit dedicated to restoring open space, the New York Restoration Project.
The Project founded the Million Trees NYC initiative, adding greenery to the city. Scores of trees were wrecked in the storm.
