Soap studs,buffet lure fans today

By Sandee Davies, Times Staff Writer
Published February 17, 2008


Ever dream of meeting the handsome stars of your favorite afternoon soap operas?

Today could be your lucky day. A special Valentine-themed brunch offers the opportunity to rub shoulders with five hunky afternoon favorites from All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live and raise money for a good cause.

Prepare for your heart to flutter and your mind to wander when you get up close with Walt Willey (who plays Jackson Montgomery) and Jeff Branson (Jonathon Lavery) of All My Children; Forbes March (Nash Brennen) and Brandon Buddy (Cole Thornhart) of One Life to Live; and Dominic Rains (Dr. Leo Julian) of General Hospital at this fifth annual event.

In "Who Wants to be the Next Soap Star," five lucky ladies will get a chance to act out a scene from a soap opera with their favorite star, and five more glide across the floor in a special "Dancing With the Stars."

The price includes a breakfast buffet with beverages. A cash bar will be available. There will be door prizes, raffle gifts, and a live auction of soap opera-related items.

Proceeds will benefit the Lighthouse of Pinellas, which offers services to blind and visually impaired people throughout Pinellas County.
