"The Ziegfeld Club, a venerable Broadway charitable organization since 1936, endeavors to keep alive and cherish the memory of Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. and the women of the Ziegfeld Follies by empowering women of musical theatre today. We do this through issue advocacy, mentoring programs, round table discussions, as well as the Billie Burke Ziegfeld Award for female composers and the Elizabeth Swados Inspiration Grant for female educators of music. We strive to help women sustain successful and lasting careers in the performing arts while honoring the memory of Billie Burke and the other hardworking, professional artists who founded our organization." - from TheZiegfeldClubInc.com
