Award-Winning Actress and Director Anjelica Huston Selected as Honorary Chair for L.A. Jewish Home's 'Walk of Ages X'

RESEDA, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Academy Award-winning actress and director Anjelica Huston has been named this year's honorary chair for the Los Angeles Jewish Home's tenth annual "Walk of Ages." With nearly 1,000 participants, it is one of the largest and most popular walks to take place each year in the San Fernando Valley. The Walk will be held on Sunday, December 6, in Reseda.

Walk of Ages raises essential funds to support the work of the nonprofit Home, the largest single-source provider of senior housing in Los Angeles. This year, event sponsors have set a goal of raising $300,000 through the Walk to benefit the residents of the Home.

"Anjelica Huston is one of this country's most important artists, which makes this a perfect pairing for one of this country's most vital issues - providing for the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of our aging population," said Walk Chair Shelly Markman. "We are extremely honored she has chosen to be involved with this key event for the Los Angeles Jewish Home."

Throughout her career, Huston has received multiple honors from the National Society of Film Critics, two Independent Spirit Awards, the Los Angeles and New York Film Critics Awards, and an honor from Women in Film. Huston received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Maerose Prizzi in the black comedy "Prizzi's Honor," in which she starred opposite Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner. In 2005, Huston received a Golden Globe award for her role in HBO's original movie, "Iron Jawed Angels," in which she starred opposite Hilary Swank and Julia Ormond.

"I am delighted to be part of such a wonderful cause - helping to care for our community's seniors," Huston said. "Join with me to support Walk X. Your participation will make a difference."

Previous honorary Walk chairs have included Lee Majors, James Caan, Don Rickles, Lainie Kazan, Jon Voight and Hal Linden.

The Walk will begin and end at the Jewish Home's Eisenberg Village Campus at 18855 Victory Boulevard in Reseda. Registration begins at 7 a.m. followed by warm-ups, the opening ceremony and the walk itself at 8:30 a.m. Nearly 50 local businesses have already shown their support by becoming sponsors of the event. Wells Fargo, a longtime Walk supporter which last year had nearly 200 participants in the event, will again be forming a Walk team. Other individuals or teams may register for the event at or by calling 818-774-3324.
