| On Friday, October 14, 2005, the 11th annual Daytime TV benefit was held to benefit the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. Martha Byrne was the gracious hostess of the evening. What an absolutely fantastic evening and a great opportunity to benefit such a worthy charity. There were simply too many stars to mention who were not only kind enough to donate their time but amazingly gracious to all of the attendees of the event. The stars mingled up until the last song of the evening with all of the attendees. I did my best to get as many pictures for all of you to enjoy.
The evening's entertainment included performances by Martha, Michael Park, Jacob Young (JR on AMC), Ilene Kristen (Roxy on OLTL), Coleen Zenk-Pinter, Jennifer Ferrin, Kim Zimmer, Jake Weary, not to mention Trent Dawson as backup for "The Love Shack." In addition to great silent auction items, there was a live auction for a dance with the daytime leading men. Jennifer Landon bid on a dance with her two co-stars Jesse Soffer and Zach Roerig, and graciously gave it away to two lucky guests. I was fortunate enough to win the autographed Tivo, which you can see Drake Hogestyn autographing in the pictures below. Special thanks to my very dear friend Sue for contributing photos #106-118. She took some terrific photos that she was gracious enough to share. I hope to see many more of you next year at this great event. In the meantime, to donate to this great charity, click here.
