Held at the Virginia Samford Theatre, with UAB Medicine as the Greenroom Presenting Sponsor, this year's Applause for the Cause fundraising event hosted by the UAB School of Nursing Board of Visitors (BOV) featured a reception in the theatre courtyard followed by a comedic performance about womanhood.

The performance was directed by the theatre's president, Cathy Rye Gilmore, and starred actresses Lee Ann Sunny Brown, Kristi Tingle Higginbotham, Jan D. Hunter, and Kristin Staskowski. More than $70,000 was raised this year to benefit the School.
