The UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation honored entertainment luminaries and philanthropists Yael and Scooter Braun at its signature fundraising event, which was held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on April 28, 2017. Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett hosted the evening, and James Corden, host of the The Late Late Show With James Corden, presented the Brauns with the 2017 Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award. Attendees were treated to a special performance by four-time Grammy nominee Ariana Grande and the comedy of Jerrod Carmichael. The live auction featured a MINI Clubman automobile from the MINI of Santa Monica dealership. Co-chairing the festivities were Joe Cohen of Creative Artists Agency, Jon Holman of the Holman Group, Larry Maguire of Far Niente Winery, Gary Newman of Fox Television Group, Jay Sures of United Talent Agency and Dana Walden of Fox Television Group. Since its inception, Taste for a Cure has raised approximately $12 million to support highest-priority research at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.
