George Christy Talks About The Cedars-Sinai Women’s Guild, Diane Keaton, Nancy Meyers and more!
Certainly, there were women in the audience remembering Diane Keaton sprinting across the screen bare-assed-naked in Something’s Gotta Give.
Sleek and comely, Diane obviously was admired in the flesh by her various suitors that included Warren Beatty, Al Pacino, etc.
Gotta Give’s among the romantic comedies written and directed by the clever Nancy Meyers. Whose films have grossed millions. They include The Parent Trap, It’s Complicated, etc.
Diane was honoring Gotta Give’s director/writer Nancy during the Women’s Guild at Cedars-Sinai 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Luncheon at The Beverly Wilshire.
Honored along with her mother Nancy, Hallie Meyers-Shyer has made her first movie Home Again starring Reese Witherspoon, following her mother’s footsteps, whose first movie was completed when she, too was 29.
Those with long memories will recall Diane Keaton appearing in the original cast of Michael Butler’s headliner musical Hair on Broadway, when Diane was one of the few cast members who did not bare all, as the others did and received $10 per performance.
The Women’s Guild at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, founded in 1957, is supportive of the doctors, nurses and the able-bodied staffers and state-of-the-art equipment.
Honorary luncheon chairman Wendy Goldberg is among the Women’s Guild stalwarts toiling tirelessly to raise multi millions with her cadre of generous givers.
Notably and lately, Wendy’s Women’s Guild colleague Gina Furth received $500,000, from one of California’s leading philanthropists, Wallis Annenberg. To complete the Guild’s pledge of $10 million for this year.
The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills is already an historic cultural strength for the country.
Lucky we are that, it’s ours.
God bless us all.
