MS Org champions honored

Dinner's a little bit fun and a little bit serious

The Natl. Multiple Sclerosis Dinner of Champions Monday was an Osmond family affair as honoree David Osmond’s father, Alan, and uncle Donny took to the stage to entertain attendees and talk about how MS has affected the singing family at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel.

“It almost doesn’t matter if it is MS, or cancer, or financial, or personal; suffering is optional,” said crooner David Osmond. “I represent a group that is fighting so hard for a good cause.”

Emceed by Byron Allen, the 36th annual event, co-hosted by Variety, also lauded Universal’s Adam Fogelson for his diligence in raising awareness of the disease. On hand to celebrate the honorees and their work were Bill Pullman, Nia Vardalos, Kevin Pollak, producer Tom Sherak and Joe McIntyre.

“I am privileged to be part of this,” Fogelson said. “I am proud that Universal is a supporter, and that the industry is a supporter. It is our responsibility to help when we can.”
