Thank you for your interest in BROADWAY BAKES, Schmackary’s annual charity event in support of Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS! This year, Broadway Bakes will be held May 27-31st and falls on our store’s 7-year anniversary! It’s guaranteed to be an incredible line-up of stars raising money for a great cause!
During Broadway Bakes, some of the biggest names on Broadway work behind the Schmackary’s counters raising money for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS. Half the proceeds from cookie sales and 100-percent of the tips generated while the Broadway stars are working at Schmackary’s goes directly to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. In past years, Schmackary’s Broadway Bakes event helped raise over $53,000 for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS.
