At a star-studded Hollywood gala tonight, the Women‘s Image Network (WIN) honored Senator Barbara Boxer as “Woman of the Year” and saluted Nike as “Advertiser of the Year” at the 13th annual WIN Awards at the Freud Playhouse, UCLA, Westwood, Calif. Additionally, WIN presented 16 awards for film, television and advertising work that dispels stereotypes and enhances the image of women. Proceeds from the 2006 gala will enable WIN to launch a new program, A Day in A Life, which will mentor girls who are at-risk, many in foster care, by supplying them with the tools (and cameras) to create images that express their feelings and capture their lives.

Katie Holmes accepted two awards on behalf of pal Helen Mirren, who was unable to attend.

Presenters, WIN Award nominees and VIP attendees included Cheryl Hines (Keeping Up With the Steins, RV, HBO‘s Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jenna Fischer (TV‘s The Office), Richard Schiff (The West Wing), Mary McDonnell (TV‘s Battlestar Galactica, Independence Day, Dances With Wolves), Gina Ravera (The Closer), Carrie Aizley & Christen Sussin (TV‘s Campus Ladies), Marcia Wallace (the upcoming Big Stan, TV‘s The Simpsons, The Bob Newhart Show), and Judge Maria Lopez (Judge Maria Lopez), among others.
