Celebrity couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw were honored at the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund An Unforgettable Evening event at the Beverly Wilshire on Wednesday, January 27.

The pair were awarded the Courage Award for their work in setting up the Tug McGraw Foundation – after Tim’s father, who died of cancer – and their work raising funds for cancer research.

“Cancer took the life of my father-in-law,” said Faith Hill. “He was a brave man during his fight towards the end. His wish was to create an organisation that provided a better way of life for cancer patients and money towards research.”

The event was also attended by Taylor Swift, Christina Applegate, Rita Wilson and Julianne Hough.

“Being a part of this cause means a lot to me because my family’s been touched by cancer several times,” said Swift. “To be here raising awareness for early detection is very important and I’ve heard they’re going to be raising close to $2 million tonight – it’s inspiring.”
