Lorna Luft, Liza Minnelli, Norm Lewis, Brian Stokes Mitchell Celebrate Lorna's Pink Party
As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month rolled around, breast cancer survivor Lorna Luft wanted to give back, so she teamed with the Actors Fund for their 2013 edition of Nothing Like a Dame. Titled Lorna's Pink Party, the Oct. 14th concert (and its Oct. 21 encore) benefitted the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Dr. Philomena McAndrew Fund of Tower Cancer Research Foundation. Guests included Luft's legendary sister Liza Minnelli as well as Norm Lewis, Liz Callaway, Ann Hampton Callaway, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Jim Caruso, Nick Adams, Marcia Strassman, Phyllis Newman and Kelly King.
