Olmos, Lansing honored by L.A. Big Sisters

Edward James Olmos is a man in demand these days.

His fiercely dedicated community activism has not gone unnoticed.

Olmos has been selected to receive the Eastman Kodak Second City Award, which recognizes individuals for their help and encouragement of young talent in the entertainment industry.

Anjelica Huston will present the award at a luncheon Oct. 22 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Additionally, the Big Sisters Guild of Los Angeles has named him their Man of the Year. The tribute to him and producer Sherry Lansing, who is to receive their Sterling Award, is set for Nov. 5 at the Beverly Hilton.

Paramount Communications president Stanley R. Jaffe and Michael Douglas will chair that event. Pierre Cossette will serve as producer, with Rita Rudner as host. Neil Simon will present the award to Lansing.

In addition, Olmos has been named one of the grand marshals of the fourth annual Run for Youth Race, sponsored by the Los Angeles Police Dept. and the Hollywood Police Support Assn. The event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 18.

Among other organizations that have called on Olmos for support recently is the Actors Fund, for whom he’s honorary chair of the annual blood drive Monday. He and drive co-chairs Marguerite Ray and Elaine Welton will greet blood donors from 9:45 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. at the Scottish Rite Temple on Wilshire in L.A.
