This home was built almost 90 years ago to help veteran actors, dancers, firm directors and other artists overcome their challenges and now serves as a tranquil retreat for these inspired individuals to celebrate their legacies and storied lives.   These people have contributed greatly to the art and culture and have greatly impacted the lives of many, especially in Poland. Poland’s Ministry of Culture and Art has been upkeeping the home but the funds it has provided are not sufficient to keep it properly maintained.


Thank you to the following artists who agreed to present their latest trends in photography, fashion, hair styles and makeup at the gala.
