Evening Agenda

Unconditional: When Minds Hurt, Love Heals

3:30 - 4:30 pm

Movie Screening and Presentation 

  • Enjoy a first look at this powerful new documentary, Unconditional, which shows the emotional impact caregivers face when a loved one is dealing with an illness. A delicate unpacking of the complicated feelings attached to tending to an ill family member, the documentary lends a deeper insight into the saying that life can only be understood backward, though it must be lived forward. Join us for a screening and keynote following two families in their caregiving journey.

    The film was directed by MSNBC reporter and anchor Richard Lui, and executive produced by Maria Shriver, Montel Williams, Lauren Miller Rogen, and Laurie Hernandez. Immediately following the viewing, we will have an open dialog with the movie director and film lead, Richard Lui.

Hors d'oeuvres, Cash Bar, Harp Music

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

  • Enjoy hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and music by Rose Aberneth.

Caregivers: A Labor of Love

Photo Gallery
