This weekend's big event was a stunner for fundraising.

The annual Broadway Bares show was yet another stunner, raising a whopping $1,386,105 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. To help out, celebs including Alan Cumming, James Franco, Bianca Del Rio, and Alex Minsky all took the stage. Franco even got in on the strip show.

This year's theme -- "Broadway Bares: Rock Hard!" -- was billed as a modern-day mix tape with tributes to the iconic moments in rock that included 170 of New York's sexiest dancers. Check out the photos on the following pages for performances honoring Elvis, Pink, Aerosmith, Prince and more.

This is the 24th edition, hld for the first time in New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom, and it lured a crowd of more than 5,000 people. In total, the 24 editions of Broadway Bares (broadwaycares.org/bares2014) have now raised more than $12.6 million for Broadway Cares.
