The Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai has been dedicated to raising money and doing other good works for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and its predecessor institutions for more than half a century.

The org has big plans for its 55th anniversary gala in November, starting with the presentation of its inaugural Hollywood Icon kudo to Wendy Goldberg, a longtime board member, and her husband, producer Leonard Goldberg. The guild’s major fundraising focus at present is fulfilling its $20 million pledge to the Women’s Guild Lung Institute, the largest facility of its kind in the Western U.S.

LL Cool J is on board to emcee the gala, set for Nov. 13 at the Beverly Wilshire, which will feature a perf by Steve Nicks.
