Additional honors will go to actress Shera Danese-Falk, wife of the late Peter Falk, who will be given the “Albert Schweitzer Award”, best-selling author Martha Grimes, who will receive the "Sam Simon Award" (named after the late co-creator of The Simpsons and long-time LCA supporter), and attorney, philanthropist and animal activist Steve Bernheim, who will receive the “Philanthropist of the Year” award. Actress Katie Cleary and radio host Mark Thompson, both animal activists, will co-host the evening’s festivities, which will begin with cocktails and vegan hor d’ oeuvres, followed by a vegan dinner and dancing to ’60’s era live music performed by “That Vibe.”
