(Hollywood, CA | August 5, 2013) Project Angel Food has released new details regarding its upcoming Angel Awards this Saturday, August 10th in Hollywood. Guests at this year’s gathering will be treated to a special appearance by the organization’s founder, Marianne Williamson, as she presents award-winning actress Jane Lynch with the appropriately named Marianne Williamson Founder Award. The evening’s other honoree, celebrity chef and Food Network star, Giada De Laurentiis, will receive the organization’s inaugural Iconic Chef Award from actress Bryce Dallas Howard. Howard knows firsthand just how extraordinary De Laurentiis is in the kitchen as one of De Laurentiis’ first jobs after cooking school was working as the Howard family’s personal chef.

On behalf of the Los Angeles City Council, Councilmember Tom LaBonge will be on hand to present each honoree with a special proclamation saluting their individual achievements. Angel Awards traditionally honor corporate and community leaders, whose support of Project Angel Food and its mission to feed men, women and children affected by life-threatening illnesses, has been significant; Angel Awards also serve as a platform to recognize individuals who have contributed to the greater good of our community on behalf of our neighbors in need.

The al fresco event, held in Project Angel Food’s “backyard” (at 922 Vine Street, Hollywood, CA 90038), will begin at 6:00PM with cocktails and a silent auction set to the musical stylings of The Harvard Yardbirds, Harvard’s acclaimed alumni a cappella group. Dinner featuring produce from the Project Angel Food community gardens will follow at 7:30PM, having been expertly prepared in the organization’s own kitchen. The evening will round out with the awards presentation and the always popular live auction which will be conducted by recent Emmy-nominee Dan Bucatinsky from ABC’s “Scandal” and Project Angel Food’s newly appointed CEO Laurie Lang.

Tickets for Angel Awards 2013 may be purchased online from Project Angel Food’s website at www.angelfood.org through 12:00PM on Friday, August 9th. Money raised from the event will fund the cooking and delivery of life-sustaining meals for men, women and children struggling with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life threatening illnesses throughout Los Angeles County. Thanks to devoted volunteers, who work under the guidance of professional staff, Project Angel Food provides 600,000 meals a year to those in need.

The Food Network Star Will Receive Inaugural Iconic Chef Award at ANGEL AWARDS Gala in Hollywood

On August 10th, 2013, Project Angel Food will honor award-winning actress Jane Lynch and acclaimed celebrity chef and television personality Giada De Laurentiis at its annual Angel Awards in Hollywood. Recently finishing up her starring role on Broadway in the musical “Annie,” Lynch will receive the Marianne Williamson Founder’s Award for her philanthropic leadership and advocacy on behalf of local-community based charities like Project Angel Food. Lynch, who can also be seen this summer as the host of NBC’s “Hollywood Game Night,” will be returning to FOX’s “Glee” this fall. De Laurentiis will be recognized with the inaugural Iconic Chef Award for her leadership in helping people connect delicious food with nutritious eating and a healthy lifestyle. In addition to her television shows and publications, De Laurentiis dedicates time to working with Oxfam America and to Stand Up for Cancer. The Food Network star supports the core belief of Project Angel Food that nourishment equals life and that we must act “out of a sense of urgency because hunger and illness do not wait.”

“I’m honored to receive Project Angel Food’s Iconic Chef Award. The work they do providing meals to thousands in need is something I’ve long admired,” said De Laurentiis upon hearing word of her award. Lynch, likewise, noted, “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be receiving this honor from the angels at Project Angel Food who are really doing God’s work.”
