Actors Fund Advocates: Our National Ambassadors

August 9, 2012

Actors Fund Trustee Phyllis Newman and National Ambassadors Honorary Chair Angela Lansbury.

There are many friends and fans of The Actors Fund who work tirelessly to spread the word about who we are and what we do. Among the many committees is the incredibly dedicated roster that makes up the National Ambassadors, comprising individuals who want to serve as advocates for The Fund by broadening awareness in the corporate, philanthropic, arts and entertainment communities, speaking about our important work with friends, family, corporate and community colleagues, and organizing special events to generate additional financial support and to introduce prospective individual and corporate donors.

The most recent of these gatherings was hosted by Actors Fund Trustee Phyllis Newman on Monday, July 23rd. Special Guest Angela Lansbury, the National Ambassadors’ Honorary Chair, and Phyllis spoke beautifully about The Fund and why it is vital to support its much needed programs.

The National Ambassadors is Co-Chaired by Peter Gallagher and Suzyn Waldman, and welcome individuals who are interested in serving as advocates for The Actors Fund by  such as Monday’s,  For more information on how you can be involved, please contact Barbara Toy, Director of Individual Giving at 212.221.7300 x108 or btoy@actorsfund.org.
