The Friends Foundation hosted actor R.J. Lindsey for a breakfast fundraiser on Wednesday, May 2, 2012.
Lindsey portrayed Carr Van Anda, a New York Times Managing Editor during the era of the Titanic disaster.
Van Anda was on duty when the S.O.S. call was heard in the radio room.
The presentation detailed the ship's construction, luxurious accommodations, and events that unfolded on that fateful evening.
He provided accounts and stories of passengers from first, second and third classes, as well as details about their experiences after the sinking of the vessel.
Attendees enjoyed a hearty breakfast, and were treated to a Q & A after the presentation.
The Friends Foundation raised nearly $5000 from the event.
