New York City was at the center of the Covid 19 pandemic, and there was talk about whether the city was ever going to be the same again. We learned the answer was “No”: we emerged better, wiser, and stronger than before!

Join us for a discussion on how one iconic and quintessentially New York City industry – Broadway – is managing through the pandemic, what they learned, and how their lessons can provide guidance and hope for fundraisers in all industries. Come curious, leave inspired!
