17th Annual Lynn Campbell Benefit A Great Success!

Published on Sep 27, 2004

Dear Supporters,

The house was sold out on September 27th for the 17th Annual Lynn Campbell Memorial Fund Benefit at the Lighthouse Theater! Special guests included Laughing Matters stars Marga Gomez, Karen Williams, and director Andrea Meyerson, who participated in a riotous Q&A following the film. Plus, comedian Julie Goldman shined in her hilarious performance and political commentary.
