LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ — Trudie Styler, UNICEF Ambassador, film producer, environmentalist and actor, will receive the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award for her longstanding commitment to UNICEF at the first UNICEF Snowflake Ball in Los Angeles, presented by Baccarat. The event will take place on November 30, 2005 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel. It will be presented to her by Robert Downey, Jr. The award is bestowed upon an exceptional individual who has used her celebrity as a force for the survival, protection and development of women and children worldwide. Appointed as Ambassador for UNICEF UK’s End Child Exploitation Fundraising Appeal in July 2004, she has raised close to $2 million for the campaign to protect millions of children from exploitation — child labor, child trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Early in 2004, she traveled to Ecuador on a fact-finding mission for the campaign and, in February 2005, she visited the tsunami-affected areas of Sri Lanka.
Sting will perform with Chris Botti during the ceremony.
