This past Sunday, I had the honor of attending The Actors Fund 20th Annual Tony Awards Viewing Party at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills along with my partner David Paul. Every year--for the last 20 years--The Actors Fund puts together a FABULOUS Black Tie Tony Awards Viewing Party. It has become the official West Coast viewing party for the Tony's. I have attended the event for many years and of course, this year I couldn't miss it!

The Actors Fund is a national human services organization that helps all professionals in the performing arts and entertainment, providing services for those who are in need, crisis or transition. My very good friend of over 30 years (Yikes!) Louie Anchondo is The Actors Fund's Director of Special Events and I love supporting him as well as the organization.
