Description

Jason Alexander, Wayne Brady, Dixie Carter, Brad Garrett, Larry Miller, Ray Romano and Lily Tomlin lead an array of luminaries from stage, television and film to honor Doris Roberts at this year’s Building It Together fundraising event.

Honoree Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) is a 50-year veteran of stage, television and film who has earned five Emmy Awards and 12 Emmy nominations. She has won the TV Guide Award, an American Comedy Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her stage work. Doris helped found the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation and last year was named Cultural Ambassador to the U.S. State Department.

There will be a silent auction and cocktails an hour before the show.

Proceeds from the event go to Camelot Artists, the nonprofit theatre company of the Beverly Hills Playhouse. Monies raised will go toward completing needed renovations, hiring valuable staff members and funding Camelot’s community outreach programs, including Arts in Action.
