Heroes of Hollywood Awards Luncheon to Honor Judge Judy Sheindlin

The Hollywood Chamber Community Foundation will honor Judge Judy Sheindlin with the 2014 Mary Pickford Award at the annual Heroes of Hollywood awards luncheon. 

The award recognizes a woman who has demonstrated a commitment to the mentorship of women in the workplace, served as a leader and role model and made significant contributions to community service. 

Sheindlin, the presiding judge on the Emmy-winning “Judge Judy,” began her career in family court in 1972 in New York. Her No. one first-run syndicated show is now in its 18th season. 

“I can’t think of anyone who better epitomizes what Mary Pickford stood for than Judge Judy Sheindlin,” Cindy Braun said in a statement. “She took her common-sense approach to legal issues as a family court judge and transitioned to TV judge and has made a significant impact on her community and the nation to become one of Hollywood’s most successful and beloved television stars.”

Foundation Chair Heather Cochran and Heroes of Hollywood event co-chairs Homer Alba and Braun have also announced the other hero honorees who will be recognized along with Sheindlin: Jeff Anthony of Iron Mountain Entertainment Services; Denise DeCarlo and Betty Fraser, co-owners of As You Like It Catering and the restaurant Grub; Jackie Goldberg of Senior Star Power Productions; Hollywood Arts Council; Starline Tours and Marc Wanamaker, principal officer at Bison Archives.

The Heroes of Hollywood awards luncheon will take place June 5 at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood, with NBC4 anchor Robert Kovacik returning as MC.
