    Event co-chair and literary luminary Tina Brown said, "I can't imagine a
more striking setting than Queen Mary 2 for this important occasion. Creating
awareness and raising funds for the study and treatment of this often
misunderstood speech disorder aboard this magnificent ocean liner is a
privilege." Among the luncheon guests at the star-studded event were actors
Sam Waterston and Kevin Kline, actress Lauren Hutton, designer Norma Kamali,
news anchor John Stossel, author Candace Bushnell, NY Senator Charles Schumer
and Jack and Suzy Welch.
