UCLA Jonsson Center to Fete Sony Pictures TV Prexy Steve Mosko

The UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s (JCCF) 19th annual Taste for a Cure event will honor Sony Pictures TV prexy Steve Mosko with the Gil Nickel humanitarian award, named in honor of JCCF supporter Gil Nickel, who died of melanoma in 2003.

Mosko oversees all TV operations for Sony and leads the largest independent TV studio with several original primetime series currently in production, including “The Blacklist” and “Community” for NBC, “The Goldbergs” and “Shark Tank” for ABC, Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” and “Bad Teacher” and “Unforgettable” for CBS.

This year’s event will celebrate the flavors of France, and 14 wineries will share their premiere product at the gourmet food and wine tasting reception.

“Since we debuted  this signature event 19 years ago, we have raised more than $9.2 million for cancer research at UCLA,” Judith C. Gasson, director of UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, said in a statement.  “With the incredible support of this year’s honoree, Steve Mosko,  who has known the devastation of cancer in his own family, along with the evening’s generous friends and participants, we anticipate ever greater strides being made to eventually eradicate this deadly disease.”

Joe Cohen, Jon Holman, Larry Maguire, Gary Newman, Jay Sures and Dana Walden will serve as dinner co-chairs of the event, which also features musical entertainment and a live auction.

“Community’s” Joel McHale will be on hand to present the award to Mosko on April 25 at the Beverly Wilshire.
