Join the Esophageal Cancer Action Network (ECAN) for an evening filled with all the glitz of Tinseltown. Special guest will be Bogie & Bacall’s son, Stephen Bogart, who has taped public service announcements and a film trailer to encourage early detection and raise awareness about the link between heartburn and cancer.
As a nod to Bogie and old Hollywood, this black-tie optional fundraiser is design to feature “all the stuff that dreams are made of.” The celebration kicks off with flashbulbs popping along the red carpet and continues with cocktails, a seated dinner, dancing, auctions and swag bags.
Emcee will be Scott Garceau, host of “The Scott Garceau Show” on Baltimore’s 105.7 The Fan. Event co-chairs are Mark and Karen Schwartzman, owners of Glen Burnie Transmissions. Mark is an ECAN board member who, like Stephen Bogart, lost his father to Esophageal Cancer.
Event proceeds will help ECAN save lives by increasing awareness about the link between heartburn and cancer, promoting early detection and supporting medical innovation to prevent, detect and treat Esophageal Cancer − one of the nation’s fastest growing cancer diagnoses.
A national non-profit organization, based in Baltimore, ECAN is led by a board of directors of top physicians, business leaders and families that have been touched by Esophageal Cancer. Mindy Mintz Mordecai founded ECAN in 2009 after losing her husband and the father of her two young daughters to the disease. Angry and frustrated because she believes that her husband and thousands more like him might never have died had they been aware of the link between heartburn and cancer, Mordecai is determined to prevent others from suffering the pain Esophageal Cancer has caused her family.
Tickets are $175/person. Corporate sponsorship packages are also available. For tickets, sponsorships or more information, call 410-358-3226 or visit www.cancerdancer.org.

On Stage at Theater J
April 10-27, 2014
By William Gibson
Starring Tovah Feldshuh
Broadway Production supervised by Scott Schwartz
A riveting portrait of one of the great women of our time, Golda Meir, Golda’s Balcony is the final work from Tony® Award-winning playwright William Gibson (The Miracle Worker, Two for the Seesaw), and an award-winning smash that, in 15 sold-out months on Broadway, set the record for the longest one-woman show in Broadway history.
From the pogroms of Russia to the halls of the Knesset, the story of Golda Meir is the story of the state of Israel in the 20th century. Starring four-time Tony® and two-time Emmy® Award-nominated TOVAH FELDSHUH, this one-woman tour de force promises to be a thrilling, deeply moving and unforgettable night of theatre.
