Schmackary’s, New York’s uniquely gourmet cookie company, will host its Fifth Annual Broadway Bakes event May 15-19, 2017. Over 20 of the biggest names on Broadway will join together to work behind the counter at Schmackary’s each day from 3-7 p.m. selling delicious, freshly-baked cookies to the public in support of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Half the proceeds from cookies sales and 100 percent of the tips generated while the Broadway stars are working at Schmackary’s will go directly to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. In the past three years, Schmackary’s Broadway Bakes event helped raise more than $38,000 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Zachary “Schmackary” Schmahl, owner, creator and cookie master of Schmackary’s believes it is very important to give back to the Broadway community, noting Broadway performers and workers have been among the five-year-old store’s best customers since its inception. “Every step of the way, the backing of the theatre community has helped our little cookie company grow into a huge success story,” Schmahl said. “So when it came time to give back, Schmackary’s wanted to assist the Broadway community in any way possible. Broadway Bakes was born, and the stars have come out twice now to help us give back and support Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.”
Some of the stars scheduled to appear at Broadway Bakes include (subject to change): Christian Borle (Two-time Tony Award Winner, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Andrew Rannells (HBO’s Girls, Falsettos),Stephanie J.
