Angels on wheels

Kudos feed hunger project

It was a “Glee”-ful Saturday night at the annual Angel Awards, which honored exec producer Dante Di Loreto for his support of Project Angel Food. He brought along singers Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty, winners of “The Glee Project,” who serenaded diners late in the evening as the show wound down on the transformed parking lot of the org’s Vine Street headquarters.

Since 1989, the org has provided meals for those in need, and so the bash was all about food.

As the sun set, supporters and stars mingled first for tiny tidbits and a silent auction, as presenters Jessica Lange, Anthony Edwards and Pauley Perrette did the meet-and-greet with friends of the charity, which included Sarah Paulson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Leslie David Baker, Louis Lombard, Paris Barclay, Bill Damaschke and Dan Schneider.

During the delicious family-style dinner, soap stalwart Sean Kanan, he of “The Young and the Restless” fame, wore a different hat, talking up his new cooking/entertaining guide for men, “The Modern Gentleman,” due out this fall, with honoree Lisa Lillien. That “Hungry Girl” Food Network star took home the Visionary Angel Award and was grateful to the crowd for committing to such a good cause on a night when they could have made a much different choice.

“Thanks for coming here, instead of trying to crash Kim Kardashian’s wedding,” Lillien joked. “Face it, you know you all wanted to be there!”
