BEVERLY HILLS– Oscar nominated and Emmy winning actors and writers Renee Taylor (Happily Divorced, The Nanny) and Joe Bologna (NCIS) will host the Second Annual We Care For Our Own® Garden Party Luncheon, Live and Silent Auction, and Memorabilia Sale for the benefit of the residents of the MPTF’s Country House Fund on Saturday, Sept. 29, inBeverly Hills. Proceeds will help the residents at the Wasserman Retirement Community in Woodland Hills to cover care and living expenses as well as costs associated with general comfort and well-being of the residents.
There will be hundreds of celebrity memorabilia items for auction and sale with price ranges for everyone. Last year Barbara Eden donated her bottle from the I Dream of Jeannie hit TV show. This year’s fun celebrity donations include Tom Hank’s donation of “Wilson,” the infamous original soccer ball face from his hit film Castaway, a Barbara Streisand portrait, Lou Ferrigno’s Hulk memorabilia, and so much more. This year as last, celebrities were asked to bring items to donate to the auction. There will be vendors from the Emmy suite parties who have come on aboard for the cause.
The hard and generous efforts of everyone on the board this event was instrumental in lobbying to keep the MPTF Long Term care facility in Woodland Hills open. The two-year difference-of-opinion finally ended last year. Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna have been at the forefront of helping residents to help cover some of their living expenses. “Every one of us is eligible to retire to the MPTF Home andLongTermCareHospital. We are all positive for the future and happy to provide funds for the residents by supporting MPTF,” said event producer Renee Taylor.
Celebrity Hosts include: Renee Taylor, Joe Bologna, Ed Lauter, Frances Fisher, Elliott Gould, Shirley Jones, Michael Nouri, Lainie Kazan, Dick VanPatten, Connie Stevens,DebbieReynolds, and Edward Lozzi.
The garden party will include Petrossian Caviar®, the event’s title sponsor, and a gourmet lunch will be served with the price of tax deductible admission. Ticket information for the public can be found in the attachment.
