Cancer Awareness Month
at the American Cancer
Society’s 18th Annual
Mother of the Year
Is there anything actress, model and supermom Brooke Shields can’t do?
When she isn’t starring in movies, appearing on TV shows (most recently as a recurring character on Army Wives), writing books, or taking care of her daughters—Rowan, 10 and Grier, 7—she manages to find time to give back!
On Oct. 21, Brooke served as co-chair for the American Cancer Society’s 18th Mothers of Year Awards Luncheon at New York City’s Plaza Hotel. This year, the luncheon honored Anne Hearst McInerney and Elisa Port, MD.
Anne and Elisa were selected as mothers of the year because of the service and inspiration that they provide not only do their children and families, but also their communities at large.
Brooke was on board to help chair the event, which invites New York’s most elite and celebrated woman. The luncheon raises funds for the American Cancer Society, and the lifesaving and life-enhancing programs it offers across the country.
