In recognition for their compassion and dedicated support of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), actress Drew Barrymore, The Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation and The Los Angeles Kings hockey team each received the Courage to Care award at the “Once Upon a Time Gala” on Oct. 15. More than 1,200 philanthropists, dignitaries and supporters gathered at The Event Deck at L.A. LIVE for the event, which raised $4 million to support the hospital’s needs including patient care, medical research and families in need. Pictured are host Josh Gad; Katy Perry, who performed at the gala, and Barrymore.
Barrymore’s annual Mother’s Day pampering events, in conjunction with her company Flower Beauty, have had a lasting positive impact on CHLA’s patient families. Luc Robitaille, Los Angeles Kings president and NHL Hall of Fame member, accepted the award on behalf of the hockey team, which is celebrating its club’s 50th anniversary this season. The Bill and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation continues the legacy of legendary film director Billy Wilder and his wife, actress Audrey Wilder. For more information, visit CHLA.org.
