Each year, the Women’s Cancer Research Fund holds “An Unforgettable Evening” of performances, awards, and stories to honor those fighting cancer and to raise money and awareness. This year, the ceremony will be hosted by Conan O’Brien (as if anyone needed a reason to like him more) with a performance by Rihanna.

Actor and comedian Martin Short will be accepting the Courage Award at the ceremony on Thursday night on behalf of his late wife, Nancy, who lost her battle with cancer last year. Martin and Nancy had been married for nearly 30 years before she fell ill, and she fought the disease for three years. Annette Bening will also be presented with the Nat King Cole Award for her charity work and contributions.

The Women’s Cancer Research Fund was co-founded by Hollywood power couples Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, along with Kelly Chapman MeyerMarion LaurieAnne DouglasQuinn Ezralow and Jamie Tisch.

For more information on the event or on the organization, visit their website. If you buy some of their “Shower for the Cure” shampoo, shower gel or bubble bath, 100% of the proceeds will go toward the cause. Plus, you’ll smell all nice and stuff!

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
