The Creative Coalition hit Washington, DC on Thursday, April 19th, with a private dinner to celebrate leading women in media. The dinner, which kicked off White House Correspondent's weekend, was also hosted by Elle Magazine and Lani Hay, CEO of Lanmark Technology. Ms. Hay has always been an advocate of the arts and women in media. In fact, she has just executive produced a TV pilot called "Frogwomen", a documentary series about putting women through the same military training as the Navy Seals.
In attendance was actor and President of The Creative Coalition
, Tim Daly
, who may be more well known for his role on "Private Practice" but always attends the White House Correspondent's Dinner to bring attention to arts advocacy for children. Their mission has always been to make sure we don't stop funding in schools for children to learn creatively as well as academically.
A stunning Ginnifer Goodwin (above) sported a super short hairdo as she arrived hand-in-hand with actor Josh Dallas (Thor), who is not only her boyfriend in real life but also her Prince Charming on her show "Once Upon A Time". David Arquette (Scream, Scream 2, Scream 3, Scream 4, Never Been Kissed) was looking happy, smiling all night long while taking photos with the ladies -- he didn't touch a drink all night but had several women fawning all over him! Omar Epps ("House") and Johnny Galecki (Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe nominee, "The Big Bang Theory") also mingled with some of DC's media elite, including Alex Wagner of MSNBC's "NOW with Alex Wagner" and Norah O'Donnell, Chief White House Correspondent for CBS.
