CARE House Circle of Friends Luncheon
“If I had a thousand hats they’d all be off to you,” actress Mia Farrow declared to the CARE House staffers who had just been applauded by the 300 luncheon guests ($120 & up tickets) gathered at the Townsend. The day before she had seen CARE House first hand and, later in her speech, lamented that it did not exist for her daughter Dylan when stepfather Woody Allen sexually abused her. Farrow’s speech also touched on the highs of her oft tumultuous life as mother of 14 children, four biological, 10 adopted. She easily tacked between amusing and solemn and wove her actress mother Maureen O’Hara, husbands Frank Sinatra, Andre Previn and Allen, plus the Beatles, into the tapestry.
