Alec Baldwin, Liza Minnelli and James Gandolfini turned out for the Starlight Benefit Gala in New York on Monday night (10Jun13) to raise funds to train underprivileged actors.

The annual gala boosts donations for the Stella Adler Outreach Division, a scheme set up by the famous Stella Adler Studio of Acting in the Big Apple to give low-income performers access to classes.

During the event, stage legend Elaine Stritch was made an Honorary Chair of the acting school, while composer Stephen Sondheim and actor George Takei were also celebrated with awards on the night.

Tom Oppenheim, the Stella Adler Studio's artistic director, says, "Stella by Starlight allows us to pay tribute to great theatre makers like Elaine Stritch and Stephen Sondheim, but perhaps more importantly, it helps us to raise funds for programs like the Outreach Division. Through the generosity of the extended community, Stella by Starlight makes it possible for young people to receive an education that brings them in touch with their most authentic selves."

Broadway legend Bernadette Peters performed at the event.
