The Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center held two successful events in July 2019 that we won’t soon forget.
Robin’s Wish – Exclusive Private Film Screening & Reception
Two-hundred (200) people attended the very first theater screening anywhere of the new Robin Williams documentary! Susan Schneider Williams and Director Tylor Norwood participated in a discussion and Q & A led by Norma Loeb. Many LBD families and friends were in attendance, as well as classmates of Robin Williams from Julliard. A cocktail reception after the film was enjoyed by all. You can view two separate videos here and photos below:
