Tribeca Film Institute® Announces Charitybuzz Auctioned Trip With Robert De Niro and Chazz Palminteri

Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) and Charitybuzz announced today a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly on a private jet, roundtrip from New York City to Boston with Robert De Niro and Chazz Palminteri for a performance of the hit musical A Bronx Tale: The Musical at the Boston Opera House on April 10, 2019.  Participants will also get to attend a private pre-show cocktail reception with the legendary actors, join them backstage after the show, and relive the experience on the plane with them back to New York City that same evening. The auction launched on Tuesday March 19, 2019 9 a.m. EST and the bidding will close on Tuesday April 2, 2019 3 p.m. EST. To join the auction, please visit: www.charitybuzz.com/ABronxTale

A Bronx Tale is a musical based on the critically acclaimed play that inspired the now classic film. This streetwise musical will take you to the stoops of the Bronx in the 1960s—where a young man is caught between the father he loves and the mob boss he’d love to be.

A Bronx Tale is directed by two-time Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks, written by Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri, with songs by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken and three-time Tony Award nominee Glenn Slater, choreography by Tony nominee Sergio Trujillo, and produced by music mogul Tommy Mottola, The Dodgers (Jersey Boys, Matilda) and Tribeca Productions, and Evamere Entertainment.

In addition, tickets to just the pre-screening reception and show are also available for purchase email donor@tfiny.org

The event supports the Tribeca Film Institute, a year-round nonprofit dedicated to helping storytellers from multiple backgrounds tell their stories, connect with audiences, and thrive in their careers.

About Tribeca Film Institute: (http://www.tribecafilminstitute.org)
Tribeca Film Institute helps to ensure that storytellers from multiple backgrounds have access to the resources and tools they need to tell their stories, connect with audiences, and thrive in their careers. In collaboration with like-minded organizations and creative thinkers, we provide funding, mentorship, industry connections, growth platforms, and continuous alumni engagement to creators whose points of view have been marginalized or misrepresented due to factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, geography, and/or politics. We believe that putting storytellers first and working with them to expand access, exposure, and sustainability fuels the creative ecosystem and enriches our culture. Tribeca Film Institute is a year-round nonprofit arts organization founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff in the wake of September 11, 2001.
