Betty White to Star in Her Own Calendar

Proceeds to Benefit The Morris Animal Foundation


            New York, New York, July 7, 2010  - The 88-year-old Betty White will be available all year long with THE BETTY WHITE CALENDAR, a 24/7 tribute to one of America's most beloved actresses, comediennes, and winner of multiple Emmy Awards. From her new hit television comedy - Hot in Cleveland (TV Land) - to her #1 Super Bowl commercial (Snickers) with the not-dead Abe Vigoda - Betty is classy, earthy and unassuming . She's also got a fantastic sense of humor about herself - and that's our idea of a centerfold!

            The last surviving member of The Golden Girls cast - Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty died between 2008 to 2010 - Betty White has also starred on Life with Elizabeth, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Carol Burnett Show as well as Mama's Family, That 70s Show, Boston Legal and Malcolm in the Middle. Deemed the "First Lady of Game Shows" by the entertainment press, Betty appeared on What's My Line?, To Tell the Truth, I've Got a Secret,  Match Game, and Password, among others, in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

            Earlier this year, Betty hosted Saturday Night Live after a grassroots Facebook campaign called "Betty White to Host SNL (Please)" attracted 500,000 fans and Betty became their oldest host ever. Ratings were SNL's highest since 2008 and a show hosted by Ben Affleck.

            The Betty White Calendar 2011 is priced at $12.99 and will go on sale in September.

            Betty White has dedicated herself to improving the lives of animals and this calendar is no exception: All of Ms. White's proceeds will benefit The Morris Animal Foundation based in Denver, Colorado.
