BALLSTON SPA – Kevin Bright has joined the Gateway House of Peace Board of Directors. He will formally embark on this role at the nonprofit organization’s annual Thanks-for-Giving Celebration on Nov. 2 at Longfellow’s Restaurant in Saratoga Springs.

Bright is one of the original executive producers behind the Emmy Award–winning television series “Friends” and is vice president and founding director of Emerson College Los Angeles, in California. Since the 1980s, Bright has produced numerous specials and programs featured on cable television.

Bright and his wife Claudia live in Los Angeles and they also have a summer home in Greenfield Center, where Claudia grew up. They have twin sons, Justin and Zachary.

Bright is a longtime supporter of Gateway, a donor-driven charitable community organization, whose mission is dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable, caring residence for terminally ill patients in need of a home during their final days.

In 2016, Bright was introduced to a 35-year-old terminal cancer patient residing at Gateway. The young woman was an avid fan of “Friends,” so Bright’s sister-in-law, a member of the organization’s board of directors, invited him to meet the young woman.

Through this connection, Bright was deeply touched by his firsthand experience of the care provided by the staff.
