Mingle Media TV and host, Kristyn Burtt, were invited to come out and cover 20th Anniversary Alzheimer’s Association “A Night at Sardi’s” from the Red Carpet at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Hollywood and Broadway performers took the stage for the 20th Anniversary Alzheimer’s Association “A Night at Sardi’s” fundraiser and awards dinner. The talented cast covered songs from some of Broadway’s most beloved musicals including “Hair,” Spamalot,” “Guys and Dolls” and more.
Laurie Burrows Grad founded this annual event to honor her father, the late playwright/director Abe Burrows. Since the inception of the event “A Night at Sadri’s” has raised more than $20 million to support the Alzheimer’s Association mission.
The CBS’s show “Unforgettable” will receive the Abe Burrows Entertainment Award for the inclusion of an Alzheimer’s story arc that raises concern and awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and is a reminder of how prevalent Alzheimer’s disease is in our everyday lives. The event will also honor Susan Disney Lord with the Alzheimer’s Association Caregiver of the Year Award. She was a caregiver for her mother, Patricia Disney who recently died from Alzheimer’s at the age of 77. Disney Lord is a philanthropist, advocate, and active member of the Alzheimer’s Association California Southland Chapter Board of Directors.
We also spoke with Ken Howard, president of SAG about the SAG-AFTRA Merger
