The Thalians All Star Gala... Best Show In Town!
Posted by Ruta Lee on Oct 26, 2008 - 3:07:32 PM

Guess who's going to make our day, and our evening, on Sunday, November 2, at 5 p.m. at the Beverly Hilton? Clint Eastwood!


Thalians President Debbie Reynolds and Chairperson Ruta Lee invite you all to attend this star-studded Hollywood event. Each year, the Thalians hold their annual gala to raise money to help those with a mental illness.


The Thalians were organized in 1953 by a group of young actors, including Debbie, who were determined to bring help, hope and healing to emotionally disturbed children.


Each year, a celebrity is chosen as the recipient of the Mr. or Ms. Wonderful Award, designed by Walt Disney. These celebrities are known not only, as you can see, for their dazzling theatrical performances, but for giving their time, energy and talent as well, to make life better for the less fortunate. Some past recipients have been showbiz icons, including Lucille Ball, Lena Horne, Frank Sinatra, Rita Hayworth, Sammy Davis, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, Whoopi Goldberg, Dean Martin, Sally Fields, Shirley MacLaine, Ann Margret, Jimmy Stewart, etc.

These honorees set the standard and example for future generations. They volunteered to give back some of their blessings to the community.

This year, the unique, multi-talented Clint Eastwood will be our own Mr. Wonderful. Joining us to celebrate will be a large contingent of celebrities, and hopefully all of you too!

For ticket information, or donations, go to our website, or call (310) 423-1040. No amount is too small. With your help, great strides are being made in research, diagnosis, treatment and care at the Thalians Mental Health Center at Cedars Sinai. Please join Debbie, Ruta, Clint and friends on Sunday, November 2.
