The 2011 Orange Ball, Paula Abdul, James Denton, the Band From TV
The Beverly Wilshire Hotel was the host to the 11th annual Lupus LA Orange Ball, where guests walked the orange carpet in support of the chronic inflammatory disease.
This year’s honorees were Debbi and Roger Cowan who received the Founders Award. The lovely Paula Abdul, now a judge for upcoming FOX TV show “The X Factor – US” graciously accepted the Loop Award for her contributions to raise awareness for Lupus.
One of the highlights of the evening was the performance of Band From TV, a group of a television actors who perform for charity. Desperate Housewives Terri Hatcher (Susan) joined her on-camera husband James Denton (Mike) onstage. Hatcher talked about what it was like to be single and sharing her hope to find that special guy in real life.
Lupus LA hoped to raise $500,000 for Lupus research. Watch the video highlights below.
