He lives in Manhattan as an award-winning writer for Esquire, is married to the beautiful and supportive Andrea (Susan Kelechi Watson), and now he has a son. But there is a cancer metastasizing within him. For decades, Lloyd’s fooled himself into believing he’s honoring his dead mother by holding on to the rage he feels toward a father who abandoned him as a child.

The event invites moms and friends to enjoy live music, wine, hors d'oeuvres, swag bags, giveaways and quality time together, as they paint.
