Pairing up for quite the worthwhile cause, Lea Michele and Darren Criss provided the entertainment at The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation's 17th Annual Taste For A Cure Gala in Beverly Hills, California on Friday night (April 20).

Held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel, the "Glee" co-stars lent their stardom to the yearly event for the UCLA based non-profit organization with a mission of raising private funds for highest priority cancer research.

With other stars including Wilmer Valderrama, Anne Heche and fellow "Glee" actor Joel McHale all partaking in the festivities, this year’s Taste For A Cure Gala saw the Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award be doted upon NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

Of picking Miss Salke for the accolade, Judith C. Gasson, Ph.D., Director, UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, said in a statement, “Our organization is so fortunate to have such an extraordinary and dedicated supporter in Jennifer Salke and we are honored to celebrate this remarkable woman for her generosity and commitment to our mission."

"Jennifer’s support of numerous philanthropic causes and her dedication to improving the lives of others embodies all of those qualities that exemplify the Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award," Dr. Gasson added.
