ABOUT SPECIAL GUEST: ACTRESS KATE WALSH
With over two decades of experience, Kate Walsh remains one of the busiest actresses in the industry. Her most recent live performance role in the off-Broadway play IF I FORGET, directed By Dan Sullivan at the Roundabout Theater in New York, for which she was nominated for a Drama League award in the category “Distinguished Performance.”
Onscreen, Wash most recently revived her popular character, The Handler, in the second season of Netfilx’s highly acclaimed original series, THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY. Walsh is perhaps best known for her starring role as Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC drama PRIVATE PRACTICE. The enormous success of her role on GREY’S ANATOMY led ABC, along with writer and creator Shondra Rimes, to create a spin-off based solely on her character, Addison. PRIVATE PRACTICE also starred Amy Brenneman, Taye Diggs and Paul Adelstein and debuted as the #1 show on Wednesday evenings. Up next, Walsh graces the big screen in action movie, HONEST THIEF, opposite Liam Neeson.
Aside from acting, Walsh continues to be an advocate and a voice for change. She is passionate about many causes, but when it comes to breast cancer the connection is personal Kate’s mother is a breast cancer survivor.

Lucy Day 1944 – 2020
Lucy Day died peacefully June 5, 2020 at her home in Palm Beach, Florida, at age 76, surrounded by family. The cause of death was pancreatic cancer. She is survived by her husband Nathaniel Day and their daughters E.V. Day (Ted Lee) of Brooklyn NY and Annabelle Day of San Francisco CA.
Lucy was born in Chicago Illinois on April 2, 1944, the only child of William Harris Reals M.D. and Lucile Farnsworth Reals. She held a bachelor’s degree from the University of Chicago and a master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania, both in Anthropology – American Archeology. After work on archeological sites and for museums, she had a career in finance and commodities and held a Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
Upon retirement, she had a rewarding life as a volunteer in Greenwich, Connecticut. She served as board chairman of three non-profit organizations and was a founder of the Breast Cancer Alliance. An enthusiastic gardener, she was a judge for the Garden Club of America for more than twenty years. At their home in Greenwich, she developed a renowned topiary garden which she and her husband donated to the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge Massachusetts. It was physically moved there in October 2018 and comprises “Lucy’s Garden.” Her love, generosity, and sense of humor brought such joy to her friends and family, and she will be greatly missed.
