On Monday, February 7, 2011, at 8pm. “Driving Miss Daisy” will be holding a very special Actor’s Fund Benefit performance dedicated to the memory of Lynn and Corin Redgrave, sister and brother to “Driving Miss Daisy” star Vanessa Redgrave.

The Redgrave family has left an unforgettable mark on the entertainment industry with careers spanning decades in film, television, and theater. Both Lynn and Corin were big supporters of The Actors Fund, an organization dedicated to helping those who work in the performing arts and entertainment industry both as performers and behind the scenes with social services and emergency assistance, health care and insurance, housing, and employment and training services.

Lynn Redgrave served on the Board of Trustees of The Actors Fund since 1992 and as a Vice Chair since 2006. She regularly served as team captain of The Actors Fund’s EIF Revlon Run/Walk team to raise awareness about women’s cancers, and was instrumental in developing “In the Spotlight,” The Actor Fund’s major gifts program. Her brother Corin regularly donated his time and talents performing to raise funds for the entertainment charity.

“Driving Miss Daisy” stars James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave, and Boyd Gaines. In what is surely going to be a very heartfelt remembrance, this would be the perfect time to see “Driving Miss Daisy” at the Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue) in New York City.
