David Osmond, Universal's Adam Fogelson honored at MS Dinner of Champions

September 28, 2010 | 10:21 am


The Osmond family is known for sticking together -- and Monday night they did just that, with Donny Osmond, his brother Alan and Alan's son David hitting the red carpet en masse for the 36th annual MS Dinner of Champions in Century City.

Ms-dinner-gallery-refer David Osmond, who hit the national stage in 2009 as a contestant on "American Idol," received the Dorothy Corwin Spirit of Life award for his work to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis. Like his father, David has MS, an unpredictable, potentially debilitating neurological disease that affects more than 2.1 million people worldwide. David was diagnosed in 2005.

Universal Pictures Chairman Adam Fogelson was the guest of honor, recognized for Universal's continuing support of the research, education and support efforts of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Southern California chapter of the NMSS sponsors the event annually.

Other famous faces hitting the red carpet: actors Nia Vardalos, Bill Pullman, D.B. Sweeney and Kevin Pollak, singer Joey McIntyre and "Amazing Race" host Phil Keoghan. Click the picture of Vardalos above to launch a gallery of red carpet arrivals.
