What a fun birthday, and what an extraordinary weekend! Thank you to all who came to Carmel to help us celebrate our dear Doris’ 92nd birthday. You made the weekend a huge success for the Doris Day Animal Foundation!
An especially big thank you goes to Scott Dreier, who performed his critically acclaimed “Doris and Me” show to an enthusiastic audience the evening before Doris’ birthday, and who generously donated all of the night’s proceeds to DDAF. We also thank Jim Martinez and Laura Didier, whose concert of Doris’ music has become an annual tradition. And Doris’ wonderful co-stars -- Jackie Joseph, Bernie Kopell, Kym Karath and Brian Nash -- who so generously gave their time and talents to make the weekend extra special. They not only helped us raise funds for the animals (Jackie Joseph may have a second career as an auctioneer!), but they also shared their loving stories of working with Doris, to our delight.
If you missed it, you can hear these recollections and many more on our newly-released DVD, "Celebrating Doris: Stories from Doris Day's Co-Stars. Click here to receive a copy of the DVD for a $35 donation (domestic shipping) or $45 (international shipping). With an introduction by Doris Day and a wealth of clips, the DVD includes brand new interviews from Jackie, Bernie, Kym and Brian, plus 11 more of Doris’ co-stars, including Kaye Ballard, Robert Morse, Jamie Farr and more! Just make your donation to DDAF. (Please know, international orders may be subject to additional taxes and duties at your location upon receipt.)
Thank you again to our performers, co-stars, volunteers and to you, our friends from all over the world, for making Doris’ birthday so special and helping us raise much-needed funds to help the precious four-leggers. You could not have given Doris a better gift! With our love and thanks,
