Diane Warren to Be Honored at Last Chance for Animals Gala


Diane Warren has achieved fame and renown as a songwriter, but she is also a devoted animal welfare activist. Warren will receive the Sam Simon Award in honor of her animal activism on Oct. 14 at Last Chance for Animals’ annual fundraising gala at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The Beverly Hilton is, of course, the site of the Golden Globes, where Warren has picked up two awards for best original song – for “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” from Burlesque (2010) and “Io sì (Seen)” from The Life Ahead (2020). Warren’s many other awards include a Grammy, a Primetime Emmy and an honorary Oscar.
Warren has written nine No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, among 32 top 10 hits. She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2001. Her songs have appeared in more than 150 motion pictures. She has amassed 14 Oscar nominations for best original song, a total matched by only seven other songwriters in history.
Singer-songwriter and animal activist E.G. Daily is slated to receive the Celebrity Activist Award. Daily is an actress and voiceover artist, known as the voice of Babe the Pig, Buttercup in the Powerpuff Girls, Baby Mumbles in Happy Feet and Tommy Pickles in Rugrats.
Bobi Leonard, an entrepreneur, businesswoman and TV personality, will receive the Albert Schweitzer Award for her dedication to advocating for animals.
“We are thrilled to honor and celebrate these outstanding individuals who are deeply committed to advocating for animal rights and animal welfare causes,” Chris DeRose, founder and president of Last Chance for Animals (LCA), said in a statement.
This year’s celebration will feature red carpet arrivals, a cocktail reception, a vegan dinner, an awards program, live entertainment and dancing. For tickets and additional information, click here.
