The late “Angel” Farrah Fawcett had lots of Malibu pals and fans that spanned the globe. The woman who launched a million teenage fantasies may be gone but her good deeds continue through the Farrah Fawcett Foundation (FFF).
Farrah established the organization in 2007 shortly after receiving a diagnosis of anal cancer. Together with friends and loved ones like Ryan O’Neal, Alana Stewart, Sherry Lansing, George Hamilton, Melanie Griffith, Dyan Cannon and Dr. Lawrence Piro, she set a goal of finding a cure by supporting cutting-edge research.
The group recently celebrated its Tex-Mex Fiesta to honor Stand Up To Cancer. El Cholo restaurant served up its famed Mexican fare at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. The festivities included special musical guests, a first-rate raffle and a one-of-a-kind auction.
Longtime friend and “Charlie’s Angels” co-star Jaclyn Smith co-chaired the event along with FFF CEO Alana Stewart. “We are thrilled to honor SU2C at our second Tex-Mex Fiesta and to continue raising funds for cancer research in Farrah’s memory,” Alana said. “Our partnership with SU2C has expedited treatment options for all HPV-related cancers. Farrah wanted to make a difference and this night will help further that goal.”
The first Tex-Mex Fiesta was held in 2015, and raised over $500,000 to help support the cause. Proceeds from this year’s event will once again benefit Stand Up To Cancer.
