Every year, the Helen Woodward Animal Center recognizes an animal welfare advocate with its “Humane Award.” The recipient of this prestigious award for 2018 was actress and producer Bo Derek, who was honored on July 19 at the home of Rancho Santa Fe resident and animal center supporter Linda Brandes.
Regarded for her role in Blake Edwards’ 1970s romantic comedy film “10,” Derek’s unwavering compassion and dedication to helping animals has garnered the attention of animal lovers around the globe.
Public Relations Director Jessica Gercke said each year Helen Woodward’s President and CEO Mike Arms selects one person or organization and honors them for the work they have done in the world of animal welfare.
