In 2011 – the 12 Angels Fund was thrilled to announce its support of the production company of the Off-Broadway play of BILL W. AND DR. BOB.(www.billwanddrbob.com).
Well-known actors Martin Sheen and Hank Azaria supported the play with performances of staged readings, including at a fundraiser in Los Angeles in November 2011 supported by 12 Angels – raising over ten thousand dollars.
12 Angels was not the only non-profit supporting and investing in the company – The Hazelden Foundation has now become the major sponsor and non-profit umbrella for the play. Now – Alcoholics Anonymous Play Bill W. and Dr. Bob to Return Off-Broadway (http://tinyurl.com/k3arsbt) this July!
