Showtime’s Nevin honored by org

Taste for the Cure 2011 throws gala event

“These are the people who are fighting the war against cancer and winning!” exclaimed Showtime’s David Nevins at the Taste for the Cure 2011. He made this proclamation just after accepting the Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award from Laura Linney. The extravagant event held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Friday was all about helping to fill the coffers of the Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation at UCLA.

The hotel’s ballroom transported guests to Oregon via wine and food stations serving up mostly organically produced treats, including an incredible pastrami sandwich from Chef Sunny Jin of Jory that paired perfectly with the luscious Bethel Heights Vineyard Casteel Reserve Pinot Noir. Pinot was the king of the evening until everyone, including “Modern Family” favorite Eric Stonestreet, Jennifer Grey with hubby Clark Gregg and Showtime stars Evan Handler and Michael C. Hall, took to their seats for dessert and the awards. Then the fight was on for the Dolce, the late Gil Nickel’s famed dessert wine from the Far Niente Winery stable.

As the party wound down, power players like Fox’s Dana Walden, Gary Newman and Kevin Reilly and UTA’s Jay Sures sipped the sweet quaff and enjoyed tunes performed by Julianne Hough and Matthew Morrison.

“Nights like this are what give meaning to our professional lives,” said Nevins.
