The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation will hold it 20th annual Taste for Cure event on Friday, May 1, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Hosted by “New Girl” star Max Greenfield, this year’s fundraiser will honor Fox Broadcasting president David Madden, with proceeds benefiting UCLA cancer research.
Golden Globe winner Matt Bomer, star of FX’s “American Horror Story,” will present Madden with the 2015 Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award.
“The Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center is moving us ever closer to a cancer-free world,” said Madden. “I am thankful to be honored with its prestigious Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award and proud to support the JCCF’s commitment to cancer research.”
Co-chairs for the event include Joe Cohen, Jay Sures and Dana Walden.
Over the past 19 years, the JCCF’s signature event has raised nearly $10 million for highest-priority cancer research at UCLA.
Italian chef Piero Selvaggio will act as the curating chef for the evening.
