Pasadena Event to Benefit Alzheimer's, ALS Associations
PASADENA, Calif.--(Business Wire)--After decades of award-winning performances, Samantha Eggar and
Kate Mulgrew are far from calling it a day.

   Instead, they're calling it: "A Day with Friends."

   On Sunday, March 16, 2008, the two actresses will share "A Day
with Friends" at the Pasadena Convention Center. Benefiting the
Alzheimer's and the ALS Associations, the one-day event will include
autograph and photo opportunities; a private screening of Round
Numbers--the only film the two have made together--and an in-depth
question-and-answer session.

   Since both actresses are also Star Trek veterans, a silent auction
will offer Star Trek memorabilia and other items for those who dare to
go where no Eggar or Mulgrew fan has ever gone before.

   "It's a chance to get up close and personal with two of the most
respected actresses in the business," said event organizer, Emily
Danyel of Los Angeles-based Tri-Booking Management.

   "The event is totally unscripted, so it's a one-of-a-kind
opportunity to interact spontaneously with two very extraordinary
artists," she added.

   Ms. Eggar soared to international stardom in the mid-sixties when
William Wyler chose her for the female lead in the film version of
John Fowles' controversial novel, The Collector. Her performance
earned her an Academy Award nomination, as well as the Cannes Film
Festival Award and a Golden Globe for Best Actress.

   She went on to star with some of Hollywood's most legendary
leading men, including Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, Yul Brynner, Kirk
Douglas and Sean Connery. With a career spanning over four decades,
Ms. Eggar has appeared in more than 90 motion pictures, TV, stage and
other multimedia productions.

   Ms. Mulgrew is an award-winning actress with a list of honors as
diverse as her movie, TV and theatre credits. In addition to a Golden
Globe nomination in 1979 for her performance in the TV series, Mrs.
Columbo, she received a Drama League Award nomination in 2007 for her
role in The Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Our Leading Lady.

   Other honors include the Carbonell Award, the Broadway.com
Audience Award and an Outer Critics Circle nomination for her
portrayal of Katherine Hepburn in Tea at Five. Fans trekking to
Pasadena should also know that Ms. Mulgrew has won Saturn and Golden
Satellite awards for her portrayal of Captain Kathryn Janeway in "Star
Trek: Voyager."

   Ticket prices for A Day with Friends range from $75 to $200. The
$200-level includes seating in the first three rows and a post-event
cocktail reception with Ms. Eggar and Ms. Mulgrew.
