ABOUT THE HONOREES:  Beverly D’Angelo, known to be one of the most down-to-earth movie stars, gained fame in the beloved comedy National Lampoon’s Vacation and the following three sequels, as well as appearing in countless movies, television and Broadway roles.  Sharon Stone is a Golden Globe (“Casino”) and EMMY winner (“The Practice”), and Career Achievement Winner from AARP Movies for Grownups. She is best known for “Basic Instinct” and her philanthropic efforts for AmfAR and many other humanitarian efforts. Kaye Ballard has been entertaining for seven decades, a singing funny girl of TV, nightclubs and musical stage (“Funny Girl”). Sue Cameron, known for her decades as a journalist with the Hollywood Reporter, is also the author of “Hollywood Secrets and Scandals,” “Hope, Healing and Help for Survivors of Sexual Abuse: A Faith-Based Journey to Healing” and “Love, Sex and Murder.”  Selby Dunham is the founder of Bighorn BAM, a non-profit organization that has raised millions of dollars for cancer care for the Coachella Valley. Elizabeth McLaughlin, PSWIFT’s “Rising Star” honoree, has been seen in “Betrayal” (ABC), “Hand of God” (Amazon) and “Pretty Little Liars” (ABC Family).

PSWIFT created the Broken Glass Awards to honor women who have “broken through the glass ceiling” in film, television, the arts and philanthropy to pave the way for others to follow.  Each year the BGA’s honor four or five women who have distinguished themselves as wonderful examples and successful pioneers in our industry. Over the years they have honored a truly distinguished group of women in our industry and community!

Previous honorees include THE MOVIE STAR Miss Ruta Lee (2013 Desert Diva Award); Miss Shirley "Busty Ingels" Jones (2012 Gena Award); Miss Lucie Arnaz (sounds familiar) (2017 Desert Diva Award); and Lindsay "Bionic Woman" Wagner (2010 Gena Award winner) among many other talented and deserving ladies.  :peachonthebeach:

I love any attention Kaye Ballard gets.  She is so ACCOMPLISHED but since the theater was not preserved, there's very little archival record of her greatest work....other than Mothers In Law of course.

Re: the prices for this event.  It's not like buying in bulk saves you anything:  COST: General Ticket – $100.00 or Table of 10 – $1,000.00  and then Mr. Winters, Mrs. Winters (nee MISS Winters), both sets of parents and the obstetrician all boge out at the last minute when MS. Winters goes into labor.  (Lucy Collins has known her so long before she married, she still calls her MISS Winters......Amazing that in 1975 the idea of a MISS giving birth was STILL enough to raise a maitre d's eyebrow--at least in Bob O'Brien's mind.)  (Look how fast I got off-topic...)

Off topic indeed. What the f are you talking about?? :HALKING:

And BTW $100 a seat for an event of this caliber these days is rather a bargain, sad to say. Yes, long overdue but as a decades long resident of Palm Springs, I believe Miss Kaye has received many "lukel" awards and accolades basically for ...well, being a famous, well-regarded Palm Springs resident. :peachonthebeach:

RE: "the f I'm talking about" in my "off-topic indeed" observation.  

Not quibbling about $100/seat.  I just thought it mildly funny that they added that 10 tickets were $1000.   Of course, they are because 10 X $100 would be $1000. 

Might I add: no need to get TESTY.
