Anne Hathaway played host to a very special night in Santa Monica. This past Saturday, the Oscar winning-actress hosted the 9th Annual Pink Party benefit.
“I’m here tonight in support of Dr. Beth Karlan and the Women’s Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, as well as all of those who in one way or another have been touched by cancer—a number I know we all agree is far too high. I’m so excited we’re all here to watch that number drop,” said Hathaway in her speech.

What was it that lead the actress to the event? She had previously mentioned on the red carpet that she became involved with the benefit after a friend of hers had battled cancer. Hathaway had asked if there was anything she could do to contribute to the organization.
The star then mentioned Dr. Karlan who helped her friend battling with cancer.
“On a personal note, Dr. Karlan helped a beloved friend of mine,” Hathaway said.
She thanked the doctor who joined her onstage and closed up by saying, “you kicked that cancer’s ass.”
