Burt Bacharach and Debbie Reynolds

Thalians in the Spotlight

As an honoree at the annual 2003 Thalians event at the Century Plaza Hotel, Burt Bacharach was crowned "Mr. Wonderful" for his generous donations and musical contributions. Burt and Ron Isley captured the crowd with a live performance from their new album Here I Am, Isley Meets Bacharach.

The ballroom overflowed with talent, extravagant apparel, and legendary faces, featuring acts by industry icons such as Thalians President and Chairwomen Debbie Reynolds and Ruta Lee. Other guests included Mary Anne Mobley with husband Gary Collins, Hugh O'Brien and Phyllis Diller.

The renowned charity organization was formed over fifty years ago by a group of famous entertainers including Robert Wagner, Hugh O'Brien, Natalie Wood and Jack Haley, Jr., who decided to transform social events into charity extravaganzas with the goal of aiding mentally disturbed children. The Thalians have earned millions of dollars for their cause the celebrity way, with style!
