Event, set for Sept. 27 at the Century Plaza hotel, will honor Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson.

The past 17 dinners have raised $39 million. This year’s tribute is special to Sherak, prexy of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, because he has known Fogelson since the exec was a teenager.
