Celebrating Our In The Spotlight Members At The Geffen

December 20, 2012


Celebrating the season with our generous donors (l-r): Fund President & CEO Joe Benincasa, ITS Member Helen Funai Erickson, Guest, Fund Western Region Director Keith McNutt and Fund Western Council Member Barbara Allyne Bennet.

On December 13, The Actors Fund threw a very special thank-you celebration for our In The Spotlight (ITS) members at Los Angeles’s Geffen Playhouse. ITS members were treated to a buffet-style dinner and then stayed to watch A Coney Island Christmas, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Marguiles, directed by Bart Delorenzo, and based on the Grace Paley short story “The Loudest Voice.”

Our supporters had such a wonderful time, we thought we’d share some of the photos from the party! We’d also like to extend a special thank-you to everyone at The Geffen for welcoming our donors and for their continued partnership, as well as Regina Miller, The Geffen’s Chief Development Officer.

Happy Holidays to our generous donors and everyone in our community!

Our lives are enriched every day through the exciting and important work of professionals in performing arts and entertainment (like the artists who appear each season at The Geffen). But very few of them have full time employment or the supports – such as health insurance – that so many of us count on.

With the help of generous members and donors like our In the Spotlight members, The Actors Fund can help our community in times of need or crisis – and you can enjoy terrific membership benefits.

Play a leading role by joining In The Spotlight, The Actors Fund Premiere Giving Society!
