May 2024: Wonderful memories made on Thursday May, 9th 2024 at the Bradley Hospital Board of Directors and Board of Governors event with the special screening of the movie, “EZRA”—directed by Tony Goldwyn and produced by William Horberg, both who were present that evening!

Featuring a star-studded cast: Robert DeNiro, Whoopi Goldberg, Rainn Wilson, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Vera Farmiga and an extremely talented 15-year-old William A. Fitzgerald making his film debut with these Hollywood heavyweights!

This was a limited seating, one-time VIP event, and it was such an honor and pleasure to be a part of it. It reinforced the importance of all that we on the Board of Directors and Board of Governors do to help support Bradley Hospital and its patients, who are children and adolescents.

Autism awareness is critically important these days, and Bradley has the resources, talented staff, advanced research, and deep knowledge to accommodate those families in need of these. Ezra was well-written, brilliantly played out by the cast! The production touched my heart and shed some tears. I encourage everyone to see it when it is officially out in the theaters at the end of May 2024! *Rated R
