Angel Awards Arrivals for Project Angel Food Honoring Jane Lynch and Giada De Laurentiis
The Angel Awards was not held in a hotel nor ballroom, but instead the backyard of Project Angel Food was transformed to a casually elegant setting complete with a harvest background.
According to Robert Bauer, Project Angel Food Chairman of the Board and Chair of the Angel Awards, who has been with the agency for 25 years, “1200-1300 people are served daily with life threatening illnesses that can’t cook for themselves.” A budget of $5 for a healthy made from scratch meal, makes it easy for anyone to feel they can make a difference is someone’s life.
Jane Lynch, star of “Glee” tv show was being honored for her leadership and advocacy on behalf of community based charities with the Marianne Williamson Founder Award by Project Angel Food’s Founder Marianne Williamson. On the green carpet, when Glee’s Jane Lynch talked about co-star Cory Monteith, it could also describe many of the people that Project Angel Food helps, “…the wheels turn in spite of what happened.” Glee was awarded the Choice TV Show: Comedy at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.
Kat Kramer (“Kat Kramer’s Films That Change The World”) felt it was so important to be at the Angel Awards that she missed her own event honoring her father, legendary filmmaker Stanley Kramer’s centennial.
Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis was honored with Project Angel Food’s first Iconic Chef Award for helping to connect delicious food with nutritious eating and a healthy lifestyle.
