Daytime Unites

Daytime Unites was a fundraiser organized by Michelle Stafford from the Young & the Restless that took place on 10/20/01. Soap opera stars from all of the West coast soaps (and a couple from the East coast) got together in North Hollywood to raise money for the I Love NYC Recovery Fund (a fund for the children of firefighters lost during the 9/11 tragedy). The actors signed event t-shirts in red and blue pens. I managed to meet over 80 daytime stars. I missed a few of them due to being in line for other stars, but I had a lot of fun. I doubt that you will ever see that many different daytime stars from different shows in one place again.
