On October 10th I was one of the Lifetime Impact Honorees at the 6th annual Variety’s Power of Women luncheon.

In a partnership with Lifetime, Variety established the award in order to honor Women in Entertainment who have a significant philanthropic impact. Imagine how excited I was to receive this award alongside, Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis, and Universal’s Donna Langley.

It was fun to have some (brief) time before the luncheon began to catch up with these other 4 amazing women.

I was being recognized for my work with GCAPP. Hard to believe its been 20 years since we started. I am so proud of the work we do. It was fun and important to have the opportunity to speak about the 20-year history and work of GCAPP to that audience which by the way was 500 people! And I was thrilled to have Aaron Sorkin present the award to me. Love the man! GCAPP’s President, Kim Nolte, our director of Public Relations, Bev Jones, and our board chair, Tom Larsen, were all able to attend and sit at my table. Tom has worked for Coca Cola for years and now runs the Laguna Beach, CA coconut water company, Zico, that Coke recently acquired.

Here we all are in the GCAPP “booth” where our literature was available along with copies of my recent book “Being A Teen.”

You can read more about GCAPP here on my website, but I hope you will visit www.gcapp.org

Here is the article from Variety Magazine, enjoy!
