The 11th annual Action Icon Awards luncheon, celebrating pioneering stuntwomen and action-oriented female trailblazers, will be held Oct.
16 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City. The event benefits Diamond in the RAW, a non-profit organization devoted to empowering and transforming the lives of foster care and at-risk teenage girls.
Hosted by broadcast journalist Roqui Theus and comic Jesus Sepulveda, the awards show is presented by La Faye Baker, veteran stunt performer, executive producer and Diamond in the RAW founder, in conjunction with executive producer Wendy Wheaton of Tinseltown Productions. “The ceremony honors entertainment professionals, women who dare to be different, and the unsung heroines behind the scenes – stuntwomen,” Baker said. “The ceremony will put action-oriented women at the forefront, creating life-changing opportunities for women, especially those of color.” “I am so delighted to work with La Faye Baker, who is the consummate professional in giving back not only to actresses in action roles, but also to many programs she puts on throughout the year for young girls who aspire to work behind the scenes,” Wheaton said.
