"Remember How I Love You" Book LaunchMonday, November 9 At The Snapple Theater Center
ALAN ALDA, CHITA RIVERA, LORRAINE BRACCO, JESSE L. MARTIN, JERRY STILLER, KELLY BISHOP, DONNA McKECHNIE, REGIS PHILBIN, RICHARD BELZER AND MORE CELEBRATE ELAINE AND JERRY ORBACH.
A host of film and theater celebrities celebrated the posthumous release of Remember How I Love You: Love Letters from an Extraordinary Marriage, Jerry and Elaine Orbach's autobiographical memoir recounting their thirty year marriage, at a once-in-a-lifetime reunion of the couple's colleagues at The Snapple Theater Center on Monday, November 9, 2009.
Each morning before leaving their Hell's Kitchen apartment to report to the set of "Law & Order", Jerry wrote Elaine a short poem for her to find upon waking. The poems were humorous, sweet and topical, focusing on the couple's morning rituals, their daily routine whatever was on Jerry's mind. Combined, they tell the story of a marriage full of life and love.
At the event, a number of Jerry and Elaine's colleagues and friends read select poems from the book and proceeds of books sold that night benefited Bideawee and The Eye-Bank for Sight Restoration, Jerry and Elaine's favorite charities.
The Eye-Bank for Sight Restoration was honored to be a beneficiary of this wonderful night! We wish to thank Catherine Russell at the Snapple Theatre and Simon and Schuster for including us in this extraordinary event. The staff of The Eye-Bank was joined by several of our Board members, including: Joseph D’Ambrosio, Andrea Nordquist, Carla Skodinski and Anne Coté Taylor, as well as Drs. Wing Chu and Sid Mandelbau.
