Entertainment Leaders Roger Lowenstein and Barbara Corday honored with Golden Goody Award
For their huge impact on the Los Angeles community and the world
Entertainment industry leaders Roger Lowenstein and Barbara Corday were honored with a special Golden Goody Award (our top humanitarian award), at the Hollywood Literary Retreat in Los Angeles, for their huge impact on the community and the world.
Along with being a speaker at this event and TV/Writer Producer for hits such as “LA Law” and “Silk Stalkings”, Roger Lowenstein is an Attorney, Executive Director and Founder of the LA Leadership Academy. This academy is a K-12 charter school for 650 predominately Latino families in Lincoln Heights. What is so exciting is that 100% of his students graduate and go to college, and the program is design to produce critical thinkers as agents of social change.
Barbara Corday is a top American television executive, writer and producer mainly known for co-creating the television series “Cagney & Lacey”. After giving up writing, she worked at several networks as a top executive at ABC, Columbia Pictures and CBS Entertainment. Barbara is a founding member of the Hollywood Women’s Political Committee, and former President of the Writers Guild Foundation. There was also an extraordinary exhibit by the Writers Guild Foundation at this Los Angeles event.
This Golden Goody Award has been previously given to social good leaders Louie Psihoyos (Director of “The Cove”), Budd Friedman (Improv Founder), Joel Bach (Showtime and “60 Minutes” Producer for a decade of climate change storytelling), Sir Nicholas Winton (who saved 669 children from the Holocaust) and Ian Somerhalder (“Vampire Diaries” and Ian Somerhalder Foundation).
Since the Hollywood Literary Retreat theme was leadership and storytelling, it was a perfect opportunity to honor these industry leaders amongst their peers. Thank you Roger Lowenstein and Barbara Corday for your many contributions to our community.
