Kate Linder's Tea Party For Charity Was Attended By Several Of Her Famous 'The Young And The Restless' Costars, Highlight Hollywood Exclusive
On Tuesday, Valentine’s Day, beautiful Kate Linder, who portrays Esther Valentine on the hit CBS soap “The Young and the Restless” celebrated another wedding anniversary with her handsome husband Ron Linder. However, recently Linder celebrated her first ever United States Northwest Tea party for charity, which Kate has done for years in neighboring Canada. In attendance were Kate’s “Y&R” costars Daniel Goddard (Cane), Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren), Christian LeBlanc (Michael) and Michael Muhney (Adam). Several thousands of dollars were raised for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
All of these “Y&R” stars have been affected by someone they loved who won or lost their battle with breast cancer. Linder said, “So many of the fans say that this was the best Northwest soap event ever, and that they want to have another one.” This was a terrific group of stars. From local beauties such as Kate and Tracey, and handsome hunks with lots of talent like Michael, Christian and Daniel. The one thing that can be counted on from stars of the number-one daytime drama “The Young and the Restless” is that they will all stand together for a good cause, and they definitely did last month, with this event, which was well-attended and covered in the local media.
The famous “Y&R” stars were joined by award winning “Y&R” hair and make-up experts, George Guzman and Patti Denney, singer Josh Smith and KIRO 7 TV reporter Michelle Millman.
The event was held at The Seattle Westin, Seattle, WA. KIRO 7 Eyewitness News and Alaska Airlines presented the 1st Annual Afternoon Tea with Kate Linder and her “Young and Restless” friends to benefit breast cancer research through the Puget Sound Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Guests enjoyed high tea, treats (sandwiches/desserts) to eat and the autograph session with cast members. Le Blanc emceed the 2-hour event which included a question
and answer session, raffle, live auction, gift bag plus exclusive “Y&R” merchandise store. George and Patti auctioned off an on-the-spot makeover for a lucky winner; Angie VanderLinda. Linder and her costars are always supporting charities locally and internationally. Michael (Muhney) recently ran a marathon supporting cancer research, a far cry from the character he plays, who has murdered, committed kidnapping, insider trading and the list goes on. While Daniel (Goddard) has also as Cane done things that are questionable. But the happily married father of 2 boys is known as one of the most gracious guys in Hollywood, Christian (LeBlanc) is a super artist, that has become as well known for his artwork as the number of Emmy Awards he’s won, and Tracey (Bregman) comes from one of the most respected families in America, and she’s multi-talented, and gorgeous, while Kate has always been there for me personally and professionally. Thanks to these great stars for their tireless efforts to support cancer research!
Highlight Hollywood loves Kate Linder and we are supporters of all her charitable work, and we love Tracey, Michael, Christian and Daniel as well! Thanks for making us proud!
