New emcee for Boldly Me fundraiser
By M. J. Laird
A last minute change replaces Los Angeles actress Carolyn Hennesy with San Francisco Bay Area performer Faith Alpher as emcee for "Boldly Me's Got Talent" Friday, April 12.
Founder and president of the year-old local organization committed to helping people embrace their physical differences, Alanna Powell, announced the change April 2 after Hennesy was notified that she could not leave a "pilot" currently in production.
Alpher, who began her acting career as an Original Jell-O Pudding kid with Bill Cosby, resides in the San Francisco Bay Area where she has performed a one-woman show and appeared in Shakespearean productions in Santa Cruz as well as in dozens of television dramas.
The fundraising event will feature dinner, live entertainment, a silent auction, and dancing at the Fremont Marriott, Silicon Valley.
