The Stars Step It Up

The event that celebrates the celebs who aren’t behaving badly.

With all the talk of stars gone wild, sometimes it’s easy to forget that there are a lot of Hollywood types who spend their free time trying to make a difference, not playing up to the paparazzi. That’s why we’re excited that Marie Claire is co-sponsoring the Step Up Women’s Network’s annual Inspiration Awards in Los Angeles on May 9 along with Los Angeles Magazine, Halé Bob, and Crystal Light. The annual gala celebrates philanthropic accomplishment by honoring celebrities, executives, and corporations for their ongoing support of the national non-profit, helping to raise critical funds for their programs, as well as for being outstanding role models for young girls.

This year’s honorees include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lifetime Networks President and CEO Andrea Wong, and the DOVE Self-Esteem Fund. “Lifetime Networks leads the entertainment industry’s focus on positive messaging for women and girls,” says Danielle Carrig, Executive Director of Step Up Women’s Network. “The Dove Self-Esteem Fund has a global commitment to promoting the self-esteem of young girls. Step Up applauds their efforts to help girls build positive self-esteem and healthy body image and we are grateful for their on-going commitment to the organization.”

Jamie Lee Curtis, Aisha Tyler, and Kelly Preston will be among the presenters at the event along with host committee members Jessica Alba, Molly Sims, Leslie Ann Warren, and Lacey Chabert. This year, Step Up Women’s Network is also celebrating its 10th year of service to women and girls. Step Up Women’s Network has grown to include 50,000 supporters who have raised millions of dollars and donated more than 100,000 volunteer hours to the organization’s programs.

If you can’t make it out to L.A., the Inspiration Awards New York Gala will be held on May 29th at the new IAC Building designed by Frank Gehry, honoring Kelly Rutherford of Gossip Girl and Dove. Tickets and information for both events is available at www.suwn.org
