September 25th, 2006 reports that the 20th Annual Flea Market & Grand Auction held on Sunday, September 24, raised a grand total of $505,832 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA). Since its debut in 1987, the Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction has raised $6,551,418.

The Flea Market and Grand Auction is an annual outdoor fair in which Broadway, Off-Broadway and other members of the theatrical community donate and sell their wares to benefit BC/EFA. The event also included the Celebrity Table, where celebrities gathered throughout the day to sign autographs and pose for photos in exchange for donations. The climax of the day was the Grand Auction, in which truly unique and priceless items are auctioned off live to the highest bidder.

Both Jennifer Naimo and John Lloyd Young talk about what a great time they had signing autographs and posing for photos at the Celebrity Table on their blog posts today. Also, a lucky bidder won a walk-on role in Jersey Boys for $8,500!
