Kate Mulgrew and Samantha Eggar are hosting "A Day With Friends", an event to benefit the Alzheimer's and ALS Associations.
As reported at The News & Observer, on Sunday, March 16, Mulgrew and Eggar will offer a unique interactive program to raise money for two causes. "We're calling it 'A Day with Friends' because that's just what it's intended to be," explained Mulgrew. "The idea is to offer an interactive program that's not only memorable and unique, but completely spontaneous as well."
The event will include autograph and photo opportunities, a private screening of Round Numbers (the only film the two stars have made together), a silent auction featuring Star Trek memorabilia and other mementos from both actresses, and an in-depth question and answer session.
"Neither one of us has ever done an event of this kind in the past," said Eggar. "But since Kate and I are close friends with each other, we thought it would be interesting to create an event that explores the role personal relationships play in the creative process, not only the relationship between performers per se, but between performers and their audiences as well."
Eggar appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation as the wife of Captain Picard's brother Robert. She has also had roles on All My Children and Commander in Chief and was once nominated for Best Actress for her role of Miranda in the movie version of John Fowles's The Collector.

In other Mulgrew news as reported at Totally Kate, Alec Egan, the son of Kate Mulgrew, is an artist whose artwork is being featured in an exhibition at Studio 2507 in Portland, Oregon. The exhibition runs through the end of the month.
Egan calls his art "ugly art", done with the purpose of striking a chord with its audience to make them think about their own dark sides, the dark side of today's culture and the disturbing aspect of politics and the state of today's world. Some of his artwork can be seen online here.
