All My Children's Connie Fletcher, Chrishell Stause and Melissa Claire Egan by Linda Lenzi/

Over a half-million dollars was raised at last Sunday’s 20th annual Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Flea Market and Grand Auction. A number of past and present residents of Pine Valley�including Jacob Young, Connie Fletcher, Jeff Branson, Chrishell Stause and Melissa Claire Egan, signed autographs and posed for photographs with fans.

Bobbie Eakes’ donation�a guided tour of the AMC set, lunch with her, and an autographed copy of her CD�netted $2,400 from a high bidder!

One of the more popular items at the ABC table was the raffle where fans had to name an ABC Daytime star who had appeared on Broadway in order to be eligible to win tickets to an upcoming gala event “ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares,” scheduled for 2007.
