A dedicated and giving
group gathered at The Music Box@Fonda in Hollywood April 2nd,
2006 to support Comedy for a Cure, a cause dedicated
to the fight against tuberous sclerosis, or TS. A VIP celebrity
reception started this evening with celebrities mingling in with
guests and a deluge of media.
there included pretty Teri Hatcher, the award winning star of
Desperate Housewives, who also served as Honorary Chairperson.
Hatcher was joined by Calista Flockhart, Patricia Heaton
and Jane Kaczmarek as hosts. More there joining in the
fundraising cause were the event's emcee Billy Bush, Jennifer
Love Hewitt, Bill Maher, Honoree Julianne Moore, Jimmy Kimmel,
Sarah Silverman, Marissa Jaret Winokor, Bob Saget, Joshua Malina,
and Honoree Charlie Koones from Variety Magazine.
The reception was
a warm up to some big bidding during the live auction. A pair
of paintings donated from renowned artist Colleen Ross
went for quite a sum. Teri Hatcher showed her
very generous spirit too. She placed the winning bid for snazzy
trip to Europe.
were raised by Clothes OFF Our Back Foundation which
partnered with this event. Through this foundation, celebrities
generously donated their handbags, really nice handbags, to further
the funds raised.
The evening was a
lot of fun for a great cause. TS affects a child in the world
every 20 minutes. TS is a genetic disorder that causes tumor growth
in the vital organs, ie., the brain, heart, skin, kidneys, eyes
and lungs. It can happen at anytime, for no known reason. Health
problems that can evolve are heart disease, epilepsy, kidney failure
and more. More people suffer from TS than cystic fibrosis, yet
it remains lesser known.
Events like Comedy
for a Cure are changing that. Great advances are being made in
finding a cure for TS due to the generosity of so many people.
