  • Making the Most of Life with Jerry Lewis (Performance Stage, Exhibit Hall) For more than 45 years, Jerry Lewis has personified the fight against neuromuscular diseases. As national chairman of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), he is a leader who wages battles on behalf of the more than a million Americans affected by these disorders. To his millions of fans, he is not only an admired actor, comedian, director, producer, and teacher, but a humanitarian striving to provide "his kids" a better future. Since 1966, his Labor Day Telethons have raised some $900 million for the search for treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases, and to provide unparalleled service to those affected by them. Come meet one of the greatest physical comics of all time.
