INDIANAPOLIS — Two organizations will benefit from the fundraising work of the 'Hamilton' cast and crew during their stop in Indianapolis.

The Broadway hit musical took over the Old National Centre with multiple sold-out evenings last month. More than 66,000 Hoosier fans saw the Tony-award winning performance in Downtown Indianapolis — and some also supported 'Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.'

After each show, a cast member would make their way to the lobby of the theater to collect donations for the cause 'Broadway Cares.' The non-profit organization helps provide medications, health care, meals, counseling, and emergency financial assistance to people with HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses across the nation.

By the end of Hamilton's Indy run, it raised around $27,845.

The money raised also supported the Damien Center, an Indianapolis-based organization that works to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in Indiana.

The money will be split evenly between the two organizations.
