You-Know-Who and Wendy Greuel. VOTE FOR HER FOR MAYOR
Yes, I flew back from NY in time for this momentous occasion. Marlo couldn't come because the would have had to have missed four performances, but the rest of the family was there beaming. St. Jude is my favorite charity. They have been cited as using the highest percentage of every dollar toward St. Jude. Danny Thomas said, "No child should die in the dawn of life," and he founded St. Jude by literally begging for money. It now costs $1.7 million a day to run, and NO PATIENT OR FAMILY PAYS ANYTHING--including food and housing and transportation.

Danny now has a well-deserved stamp

The Danny Cigar
Phil Donahue, Terre Thomas and Tony Thomas emceed, and the event was chaired by Terre and Robert Ellis. It was magnificent, with entertainment by Tony Bennett and Ray Romano. It was sold out, and the video by Marlo talking about her father brought everyone to tears. It was followed by video clips of Danny, and each guest had a chocolate "Danny" cigar on his or her plate. I felt Danny and Rose Marie's presence all evening.
