Brent Shapiro Foundation and Project Angel Food

Gorgeous Eva Longoria was hostess for the Summer Spectacular benefitting the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. This is their 14th year and they have raised over $12 million dollars to support their cause. The Sobriety Award was presented to actor, producer and writer Will Arnett, who has been very candid about his challenges on his work with “Flaked”. Past recipients include Rob Lowe, Jack Osborne and Sugar Ray Leonard. 

Foundation creators Robert and Linell Shapiro presented scholarships to members of Brent’s Club, in honor of their son, who died from drug overdose. It was an honor to meet the several young awardees, who came from difficult backgrounds and hear their courageous struggle to make a productive life for themselves.

Entertainment was provided by Sheila E and Pia Toscana, who had the standing room only crowd jumpin with joy. The extensive auction featured such items as an Aspen getaway, Jamaica vacation, Super Bowl tickets and speaking role on “Bold and the Beautiful”. The well-healed crowd bid furiously on these and other items, and raised a tidy sum to prevent and cure drug addiction. 

At another event, Project Angel Food turned their parking lot in Hollywood, into a stunning outdoor ballroom to raise funds to provide meals to our most vulnerable neighbors. Honorees included Jaime Lee Curtis and Jami and Klaus Heidegger, philanthropists and creators of Kiehls. Guests were treated to a special performance by Mary Wilson, Founding Member of The Supremes, and the menu was created by action star – Danny Trejo and his culinary staff!

Some of the distinguished guests included Sean Hayes, Joely Fisher, Jennifer Tilly and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Kudos to Marianne Williamson, Founder of Project Angel Food and the hard working staff for creating a special evening of love, sharing and support of those in need.
