Good news for the Kangol-capped one.
Les Moonves must have given the thumbs up to LL Cool J’s multi-year audition at the Grammys, as the actor/rapper/”NCIS: Los Angeles” star will move from that downtown stage to the Beverly Wilshire for the Venice Family Clinic’s Silver Circle Gala on Monday, March 9.
“You can’t overstate how powerful it is for a man like Les to use not only his influence, but that of CBS and Warner Brothers, to help raise money for the Venice Family Clinic,” super producer and clinic stalwart Chuck Lorre said in a statement to The Party Report.
“The effect is real and lasting. Free health care for anyone walking in the door, is a blessing for this community.” Moonves will get the Humanitarian Award.
The Venice Family clinic draws consistent top-level industry support from those will never need its family-focused medical services for low income and uninsured westside communities throughout its nine locations, with a tenth opening this year.
Volunteers and donors include Judd Apatow, Sam Gores, Jay Sures, Steve Mosko, Chuck Lorre, Barry Meyer, “Breaking Bad” mastermind Vince Gilligan, and last year’s honoree, ICM’s Chris Silbermann, who reportedly raised $250,000 himself.
Most agencies and networks usually buy tables at the industry heavy event, which nets about $1.3 million each March at this Monday night event.
They need it. They provide free primary healthcare to over 24,000 people each year.
That’s about 100 every work day.
Dr. Bill Resnick and Michael J. Stubbs will also get honors at the event. UCLA Health System and the David Geffen School of Medicine are supporting the night.
