This weekend was the Jackie Coogan Centennial honoring the star of The Kid and The Addams Family. Jackie Coogan as you may or may not know is the grandfather of honorary MTF Family member Keith Coogan.
Awesome Anushika, Liz and myself headed out to the event and it was a very nice evening with heartfelt memories, a fine introduction by Keith and many fans in attendance.
Pinky did a wonderful recap of the evening below, check it out!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here completely exhausted after such an event-filled weekend. The main event? Our Coogan Centennial in honor of Keith’s iconic grandfather, Jackie Coogan.
I was going through our pictures to see which star I could feature in today’s Manic Monday, when it occurred to me that there were just too many of our amazing and talented friends there to just choose one. Plus, most of them did a lot of work in the ‘80s, which makes them all perfect for the column today.
We’re so grateful for their love and support and were stoked that so many people came out to pay tribute to Jackie Coogan.
The screening of The Kid was awesome, as was the tribute video Keith put together to begin the night.
He did such a great job and I’m so very proud of my husband. Special thanks to my Fanboy family for coming out, as well! We loved being surrounded by so many dear friends and family.
It was a night to remember and I couldn’t be prouder of how everything came together.
Special thanks to Christian Meoli at Arena Cinema for the incredible venue, as well as the artwork done by our dear friends Gerry and Nicole. Thanks to everyone involved and enjoy some of the pictures from the evening! If you’d like to see more, there are great galleries from the night on both Wireimage and Getty Images.
