The Motion Picture & Television Fund will forever remember and celebrate the passionate commitment of Edie Wasserman. Mrs. Wasserman was a member of MPTF’s Board of Trustees and, along with her late husband Lew, was a tireless benefactor whose legacy will be felt in the millions of dollars she raised in support of MPTF. We will all miss her commitment to making certain that the men and women who gave the best hours and days of their lives to toiling in the entertainment industry were well taken care of throughout their lives.  She never forgot how very complicated and stressful working in the industry could be and how important it was to give back to reward those who kept the industry going and made it successful. Her compassion for people was authentic and demonstrated in her work with the Board’s Case Committee, advocating for those in need, and with the residents of The Wasserman Campus in Woodland Hills, with who she celebrated her birthday every year.
