H’wood with heart at D’Works benefit

Event took place in Universal City for the USC Institute of Urology

Movie execs were busy Saturday helping to raise coin for cancer research and care.

DreamWorks’ Jeff Small hosted a benefit at DreamWorks Studios in Universal City for the USC Institute of Urology.

Matthew Morrison performed, and roughly $1 million was raised.

Small told the crowd, “My own story started in 2010, when, after what I figured would be an uneventful CT scan, my internist called me at my office and told me I needed to sit down. He said the scan showed a large tumor on my left kidney. I did sit down. Shocked, out of breath scared, 36 years old.”

Small escaped with 80% of his cancerous kidney intact, and has been cancer-free since.

Later that day, DreamWorks Animation’s Anne Globe, Miranda Cosgrove and other Hollywood luminaries literally brightened the streets of Hollywood at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s local Light the Night Walk at and around Sunset Gower Studios. Participants carried illuminated balloons, color-coded for supporters (red), survivors (white) and those walking in memory of a loved one (gold).

“We all dream of a world without cancer,” said Cosgrove. Event raised $1 million for the Society.
