On Sunday, my wife Laurie and I attended the Senior Star Power Productions Friend Raiser and Teaser for a New Musical Revue entitled We Have A Dream. The event took place at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, and included a Champagne Reception.
It was a star-studded gala, and A-List guests included Margaret O’Brien (the star featured in our upcoming Forgotten Hollywood Documentary), George Chakiris (who, like O’Brien, is an Academy Award-winning actor), Florence Henderson, and Alison Arngrim (who recently was on a celebrity-author panel with me at the El Segundo Author Fair). Former US Representative Diane Watson and Hollywood Councilman Mitch O’Farrell were also on hand. Farrell made a presentation to Senior Star Power Productions: A Los Angeles Certificate of Appreciation. MANNY PACHECO MARGARET O’BRIEN
