The Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation's 25th anniversary benefit concert, Help Is on the Way, held August 18 at the Herbst Theatre, included a super-talented array of Broadway and local cabaret singers, including Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless, Leanne Borghesi, Paula West, Sam Harris, Kimberley Locke, Bruce Vilanch, Franc D'Ambrosio, Constantin Maroulis and several others. Playwright Del Shores ran the live auction with aplomb. Executive Director/CEO Ken Henderson and Board Chair Joe Seiler honored decades-long volunteers onstage.

Longtime show biz legend Carole Cook was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her quarter-century of AIDS fundraising, before she performed one of her wry monologues with a few songs.

The pre-show and post-show receptions, held in the upstairs Green Room, saw local luminaries and philanthopists schmoozing with the performers, as food, wines and chocolate treats were served.

The next benefit concert will be Sept. 16, with cast members from Hamilton.
