Tony and Emmy award-winning Mandy Patinkin headlines JFS Executive Luncheon April 24
Jewish Family Service of Colorado welcomes Mandy Patinkin, Tony and Emmy award-winning performer and current star of Showtime’s hit drama series Homeland, as the speaker for its ninth annual JFS Executive Luncheon fundraiser on Wednesday, April 24. The luncheon will be held at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, 650 15th St. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and the program will start promptly at noon.
Patinkin is a Tony and Emmy Award-winning performer and Broadway’s master songman. He won a
Tony Award for his 1980 Broadway debut as Che in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita and was again nominated in 1984 for his starring role in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical Sunday in the Park With George. He won a 1995 Emmy Award for his critically acclaimed performance in the CBS series ”Chicago Hope,” and has just wrapped a second season as CIA Division Chief Saul Berenson in the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning
Showtime Original Series “Homeland.”
Patinkin is perhaps best known as the iconic swordsman, Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride, the classic fairy tale film celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. He tours extensively, appearing to sold-out audiences across the United States, Canada, London and Australia, performing songs from writers including Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Randy Newman, Adam Guettel and Harry Chapin, among others.
All proceeds from the event will help support all programs of JFS, including mental health counseling, senior and adult in-home care, disability and employment services, and family safety net services. Founded in Denver in 1872, JFS is a nonprofit community agency serving people regardless of age, race, faith, or income.
