Bebe Neuwirth’s Medal of Honor Acceptance Speech

June 30, 2011

Bebe NeuwirthOne of our three honorees at the 2011 Actors Fund Gala on May 24 was the always amazing and incredibly dedicated Bebe Neuwirth. Vice President of The Fund, she was awarded the Medal of Honor for founding The Dancers’ Resource, created in response to the unique situation dancers face due to the physically demanding nature of their work, coupled with the significant financial challenges of earning a living in dance.

We thought we’d share her incredibly moving acceptance speech (footage of which also includes the touching introduction by her good friend Ann Reinking). And if you’d like to hear two stories of how The Dancers’ Resource has made a difference, click here to view the equally emotional testimonials given at the Gala by Marimba Gold-Watts and Jesse Factor.
