Bonnie Hunt, Melina Kanakaredes and Dr. Ruth Westheimer Lend Their Support to Children's Brain Tumor Foundation Benefit
Date:5/13/2009

Melina Kanakaredes, the Foundation's celebrity spokesperson, also participated in the event. She served as mistress of ceremonies for last year's benefit and has subsequently recorded a public service advertisement for the Foundation and promoted its concerns at every opportunity.

Ms. Kanakaredes currently stars in the CBS series CSI: New York, which is in its fifth hit season. She has also taken on the role of writing for the show. Her first penned episode of CSI: New York airs May 15th, 2009. Prior to CSI: New York, Ms. Kanakaredes starred for five seasons on the series Providence. For her performance, she received the 2000 TV Guide Award for Favorite Actress in a Drama. While on the show, Melina made her directing debut. In 2003, she gave birth to her second child, took to the stage as Sally Bowles in the Broadway musical Cabaret and shot the independent film Into the Fire.

Ms. Kanakaredes was recently cast in Fox 2000's fantasy adaptation-adventure of the feature film Percy Jackson, in which she will play the Greek mythological icon Athena. The film will be directed by Chris Columbus and is slated for a February 2010 release.

Ruth Westheimer again aided the Foundation's fundraising efforts by allowing us to auction a luncheon with her.

Dr. Westheimer may best be known for having pioneered talking explicitly about sex on radio and television, but that is only a small part of her rich and diversified life. Born in Germany in 1928, she went to Switzerland at the age of ten to escape the Holocaust, which wiped out her entire immediate family. At the age of sixteen she went to then Palestine and the Haganah, the Israeli freedom fighters, and was trained to be a sniper and was seriously wounded in a bomb blast. She later moved to Paris to study at the Sorbonne and in 1956 went to the U.S. where she obtained her Masters Degree in Sociology f
