Jhpiego Advisory Board Members Dr. Howie Mandel and Ellen Hoberman co-hosted a fabulous “friendraiser” for Jhpiego in Los Angeles recently. Guests, many from the entertainment industry, were invited to The Geffen Playhouse to see a production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Ruined,” a searing portrait of the lives of women in the violence-scarred Democratic Republic of Congo. At a pre-theater supper, Jhpiego President and CEO, Leslie Mancuso, talked about the organization’s work to prevent the needless deaths of women and families with such luminaries as actor Jason Alexander of “Seinfeld” fame, actress Melina Kanakaredes, who starred in “CSI,” and Jamie McCourt, owner of the LA Dodgers.
