AS THE WORLD TURNS Fan Club Luncheon

I had a wonderful time at the AS THE WORLD TURNS Fan Club Luncheon on Saturday. Most of the cast attended and all the fans I spoke with had an excellent time.

Michael Park co-hosted the introductions with Mick Hazen, whose voice had apparently changed this week per Park. When she was introduced, Colleen Zenk Pinter spoke about her battle with oral cancer and received a nice ovation. She encouraged everyone to demand an oral cancer screening from their dentist.

Kathleen Widdoes, Elizabeth Hubbard, Billy Magnussen, Trent Dawson and Van Hansis with Jake Silbermann were introduced to massive screams from the crowd. I attended with a large group of Luke and Noah fans and it was a real pleasure. Michael Park joked that the Hershey Kisses that Luke and Noah fans sent in have impacted his waistline.

After the introductions, the actors were escorted to their tables where they began to take pictures and sign autographs with fans. Below are some of my favorite photos from the day.

With Jake Silbermann and Van Hansis, who left the luncheon with a truckload of gifts from adoring fans.

With Dylan Bruce who was trying to be taller than me.

With Billy Magnussen who entertained fans all day long.

With daytime legend Eileen Fulton.

With Chaunteé Schuler and Wolé Parks. Parks by the way is leading the ATWT AIDS Walk team on May 18.
