Eva, Jen and Katie Receive Variety Honors

Eva Mendes, Jennifer Garner and Katie Holmes are among the guests honored at this year's Variety Power of Women luncheon.

All three beautiful women are among the Lifetime Impact Honorees at the second annual event which recognizes the philanthropic work of women in Hollywood. No mention of Angelina?

Eva is being recognized for her work with Art of Elysium – a non-profit organization which encourages working actors, artists and musicians to dedicate their time to children suffering from serious medical conditions – while Jennifer is acknowledged for her work with Save the Children.

Jennifer is saluted for work with Save the Children, a multipronged charitable force for underprivileged kids.

Katie has been invited for her work with the Dizzy Feet Foundation, an organization she set up in 2009 with ‘American Idol’ producer Nigel Lythgoe, ‘The Pacifier’ director Adam Shankman and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ judge Carrie Ann Inaba to help underprivileged young people in the US become professional dancers and to increase access to dance education in America.

Michelle Sobrino, Variety’s Associate Publisher, said in a statement: “By honoring this incredible group of high-profile women who are leading the charge, we hope to inspire and empower everyone within our industry - and throughout the world - to get involved and give back.

“The goal of Variety’s Power of Women is to celebrate women in entertainment who have made significant contributions to the philanthropic and charitable causes closest to their hearts.”

Variety’s Power of Women luncheon will take place at the Beverly Hills Hotel on September 30. They're all such wonderful role models, its nice to see them get recognition.
