Tonight, I was invited by my best friend Jacqui to attend a fund raising event for the Christopher Reeve Foundation. Last year, I met people such as Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Robin Williams, Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, Paul Newman, etc.
This year, some of the big names include: Nathan Lane, Barbara Walters, Meryl Streep, Donny Osmond, Bebe Neuwirth, former NJ Governor Tom Kean, Real Estate Mogul and NJ Nets Owner Bruce Ratner, the cast of Tarzan, Jersey Boys and Bob Dylan & Twyla Tharpe’s The Times They Are A Changin’, etc.
