Emmy-winner Sheryl Lee Ralph (Abbott Elementary) was the star of the show at last week’s Elizabeth Taylor Ball to End AIDS fundraising gala in Los Angeles. Ralph, along with fellow superstars Charlize Theron and Colin Farrell, received the Elizabeth Taylor Commitment to End AIDS Award for their work to battle the epidemic. Gilead Sciences and BVLGARI served as sponsors, and celebrities like Jennifer Tilly, Paris Jackson, and Evan Ross were in attendance.
Ralph, a longtime actress who was one of Broadway’s original Dreamgirls, has worked for decades to ensure resources for people living with HIV. Ralph, fresh off her Emmy win, attended the ceremony with her son and daughter-in-law.
