“For 27 years, the Genesis Awards have celebrated the power of the media to shed light onanimal protection issues,” stated Beverly Kaskey, senior director of HSUS’ Hollywood Outreach and executive producer of The Genesis Awards Benefit Gala announcing this year’s nominees. “This year one nominee, Big Miracle, reflects the Genesis credo with its true account of how one TV reporter’s story triggers a worldwide effort to save a family of imperiled whales, proving that the media can and does make a difference.”
Dancing With the Stars‘ Carrie Ann Inaba will host the awards gala on March 23, 2013 in Beverly Hills.
