Chris Cornell will be honored at the LA Chefs For Human Rights Dinner for for his original song "The Promise," and for his philanthropic and humanitarian efforts on behalf of vulnerable children around the world. His widow, Vicky Cornell, will accept the award.
"We're deeply honored to celebrate the life-changing work Vicky and Chris have accomplished, and which she continues to carry on," says Kim Luu-Ng, a longtime human rights advocate, lawyer, and PTV board of directors member. "Their support of and dedication to Syrian refugee children languishing in refugee camps raises awareness for this ongoing, six-year crisis and provides hope to so many who have lost it."
Cornell wrote "The Promise" for the film of the same name about the Armenian Genocide.
The event unites the city's most celebrated chefs and bakers to cook an incredible multi-course dinner, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting PTV, which heals and rebuilds the lives of torture survivors from over 70 countries.
