Lou Diamond Philips to be Honored at Time for Lyme Dream Gala

Actors, Musicians and Scientist unite to create a Lyme Free World. Time for Lyme hosts 8th Fundraiser. Proceeds from the Gala will fund critically important research and education.

Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) April 5, 2009 -- Time for Lyme (TFL), a research, education and advocacy group will honor Lou Diamond Phillips.

TFL has the distinct privilege to introduce Lou Diamond Phillips to the Lyme disease community at the TFL Gala, "The Dream - Creating a Lyme Free World" to be held on April 18th in Greenwich CT, where he will receive the 2009 Time For Lyme Humanitarian Award.

ABOUT THE AWARD: In 2007, Time For Lyme introduced a bi-annual award ceremony to honor great humanitarians who also advance the awareness of Lyme disease and help make progress towards its cure. The first recipient of the Award, in April 2007 was the designer Tommy Hilfiger.

Lou Diamond Phillips' diverse background has enriched his many performances which have garnered him a Tony Award Nomination for the critically acclaimed The King and I, and both a Golden Globe Nomination and Independent Spirit Award for Stand and Deliver. Lou has also starred in such acclaimed feature films as La Bamba and Young Guns, among many others. He has recently joined the cast of Sci Fi Channel's new original series SGU: Stargate Universe.

As a distinguished actor, director and writer in the world of entertainment, Lou Diamond Phillips has also turned his creative talents and personal efforts towards improving the lives of many people who needed a tireless champion.

Mr. Phillips has received numerous accolades for his humanitarian work over the years, including the Oxfam America Partners Award for his commitment to fighting global hunger. He has been recognized by Amnesty International for his human rights work. He also has served as a spokesman for ACT Today and the California Teachers Association's Read Across America Program. He is the spokesperson for Autism Care and Treatment and is also very active with Aids Project LA and with Broadway Cares. Most recently, Mr. Phillips received a presidential citation from the Philippine President, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, in recognition of his efforts for Filipino World War II Veterans.

The Dream Gala will feature the Young People's Chorus of New York City in a program highlighted by the chorus's signature song, "Give Us Hope," composed by Jim Papoulis, with lyrics by Leo Schaff and Regine Urbach. Click to listen.

The Gala will also celebrate the award-winning movie "LYMELIFE" directed by Derick Martini and starring Alec Baldwin, Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Kieran Culkin, Jill Hennessey, Cynthia Nixon and Timothy Hutton.

Nobel Laureate Professor Luc Montagnier will be awarded Time for Lyme's Lauren F. Brooks Hope Award for his global perspective on infectious diseases, including Lyme disease.

While most cases of Lyme disease are reported from North America and Europe, the disease is also found for example, in China, Australia, Japan, North Africa and Israel. "For over 30 years, nothing seems to have improved for those stricken with chronic Lyme disease. Misdiagnosed and improperly treated Lyme disease can lead to a devastating effect on a person, a family, and a community.

Time for Lyme hopes that the community will join with the honored guests on April 18th to help Time for Lyme realize its dream to create a Lyme-Free world.

... About the Time for Lyme Gala

On April 18, 2009, Time for Lyme will present its bi- annual Gala event - The Dream - Creating a Lyme Free World, at the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, CT.

During the course of the evening, TFL will share information regarding its work in education, advocacy, and will talk about progress in research.
