Mothers of Madness Event

Last Sunday, my friend Eleanor hosted an exquisite dinner to raise funds for my project. There were no speeches, just an exceptionally good time for 18 lucky people. Eleanor, whose mom owned “Mama DeVito’s Italian Kitchen” in upstate New York, is a master Italian cook. Here are a few photos of the the event.

This is me with my brother Eric and my nephew Phil, the waiter.

This last photo, taken with my IPhone, is what Mothers of Madness is all about. Women with mentally ill children reaching out to each other.

All other photos were taken by Richard Pauli (who therefore, is in none of them) and Keith Geller.
