Join Us for Doris' 96th Birthday Event

Doris' 96th Birthday fundraiser event in Carmel, Calif., will be bigger and more fun than ever, so we hope you'll join the celebration!

We'll also be marking the 50th Anniversary of Doris' final film, “With Six You Get Eggroll.” We’ve planned a weekend full of festivities, including celebrity co-star appearances*, a live show, a special screening, live auction, raffle, Bingo and fan interviews. 

Entertainment Package

Ensure you'll have seats at these great events by purchasing the Friday/Saturday $200 Entertainment Package.**  Call 831-620-7455 to buy. All proceeds benefit the Doris Day Animal Foundation, so don't miss out!

Thursday evening, March 29 

The fans are holding a casual evening of “Doris Day Bingo” in the Cypress Inn living room, led by “The Doris Day Show” co-star, Jackie Joseph.  Stop by for fun, prizes and perhaps a “With Six You Get Eggroll” drink or two.  It's a great way to kick off the weekend!

(Please note that this is a fan-run event and not part of DDAF’s Entertainment Package.  All proceeds will benefit DDAF.)

Friday evening, March 30

Back by popular demand, Scott Dreier will headline a brand-new show at the Carmel Performing Arts Center, based on his recent album, “The Doris Day Project.” It's full of new Doris Day songs and stories.  Our special guest, Carmel Mayor Steve Dallas, will make the Doris Day celebrations official with a proclamation in Doris’ honor.  You won’t want to miss it!

Saturday evening, March 31

You are invited to the 50th Anniversary Screening of “With Six You Get Eggroll,” followed by a fun, behind-the-scenes Q&A with some of Doris’ co-stars, including her movie “sons” and returning favorite, Jackie Joseph!*  This feel-good, family comedy stars Doris and Brian Keith, with John Findlater, Jimmy Bracken, Richard Steele and Barbara Hershey as their kids.  Rounding out the supporting cast is one of the best groups of comedy greats ever assembled, such as Jamie Farr, Jackie Joseph, George Carlin, Pat Carroll, Alice Ghostley and Vic Tayback.  We will also have a live auction, featuring a great selection of signed memorabillia, raffle, photo ops and much, much more!
