The WIN Awards were co-hosted by Melissa Petermen and Bruce Vilanch. The Humanitarian Award was presented by actress Lisa Kudrow.
"I am so honored that WIN, an organization that promotes positive images of women and girls in the media and recognizes female writers, producers and directors chose to honor me with their Humanitarian Award," said Bell.
"WIN wanted to recognize my work in the arts and arts education through organizations like PS Arts, MOCA and Americans for the Arts as well as my recent appointment by Mayor Villaraigosa as a cultural affairs commissioner for the city of Los Angeles," she continued. "I thank Phyllis Stuart for her leadership at WIN."
The event was held at Paramount Studios and was attended by Lee Phillip Bell, Lauralee Bell, Jeanne Cooper, Eric Braeden, Genie Francis, Patty Weaver and many others. Check out a few photos below:
