Our own Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel was the venue for the 39th Annual Dinner of Champions, which raises funds for MS Research & Programs. This year Pam Kehaly, President of Anthem, was honored in recognition of her and Anthem Blue Cross’ support, helping the MS Society move closer toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. Rep. Henry A. and Janet Waxman were also honored with the Spirit of Life Award. Previous honorees included Amy Pascal, Bob & Harvey Weinstein, and Annette Funicello, to name a few.
Country singer, Julie Roberts and actor/comedian Anthony Griffith, who both live with MS, performed at the dinner; and Jillian Escoto, radio personality, served as master of ceremonies. Did you know that MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide? Since the Dinner of Champions is the most successful event held by any chapter of the National MS Society, we hope they reach their goal to eradicate this disabling disease.
