Broadway to the RescueBroadway to the Rescue is Hope of the Valley’s signature event that brings together a star-studded roster of Broadway performers with impressive resumes of nearly 100 renowned Broadway shows. Michael-Leon Wooley, an award winning entertainer and Broadway performer, was moved to create Broadway to the Rescue after serving meals to clients at our HELP Center because he wanted to use his many talents and industry connections to make more of an impact. What started out as a show in a 150 seat bar in North Hollywood has now turned into an annual benefit at the 900seat Montalban Theatre in Hollywood. Stay tuned for info about 2019 Broadway to the Rescue!
