“I couldn’t be happier that we were able to make our film “Careful What You Wish For” available for this special screening to help promote and support the American Diabetes Association’s Father of the Year Awards [ADA/FOTY],” commented Michael Helfant, one of the producers of the film and past Father of the Year honoree. “I became involved with this organization after working with Nick [Jonas] on the film. Nick’s father Kevin is also a past FOTY honoree, as is one of our other actors in the film, the always outstanding Paul Sorvino, and Dr. Kevin Kaiserman, one of the co-chairs of the ADA/FOTY dinner next month and my daughter Arianna’s pediatric endocrinologist for many years. Talk about synchronicity. We’ve come full circle and the spotlight is on the ADA Father of the Year Awards. This special screening and the FOTY dinner next month will both be great events supporting the Association.”
