AMC diva Lucci remarked about the event,
It was such an incredible privilege and joy to join my fellow co-stars to perform in the seven ABC Daytime Salutes concerts to benefit Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS. There are no fans like ABC Daytime fans. Their love and support continue to astonish us. We can’t wait to share these special performances with them and help raise money for so many in need during this difficult time.
Soap fans will also have the chance for participate in a one-on-one virtual meet-and-greets with their favorite daytime actors on Saturday, Feb. 13. Information on tickets and the lineup of special guests will be announced later this month.
