Other guests of honor included actors John McCook, Alec Mapa, Joely Fisher, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Ed Begley, Jr. and Dr. Caitlin Ryan. Singer and Grammy-nominated songwriter Bonnie McKee, perhaps best known for co-writing hit songs like Katy Perry’s “Teenage Deram” and “Roar,” performed two song for the honorees and over 300 attendees.
