The Big Data portion of the evening included a speech by Dr. David Shulkin, Secretary of Veteran Affairs, who was presented by Dr. Jonathan Simons, PCF President and CEO. Dr. Shulkin spoke on the VA’s commitment to transformation and modernization, including aggressively attacking prostate cancer, the most common form of cancer among veterans. The theme of Family was exemplified by the night’s honorees, Peter and Laurie Grauer, who were recognized for their commitment to cancer research and dedication to increasing the number of women in leadership positions, both in science and beyond. The evening concluded with a rousing performance by Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer Jennifer Hudson, who sang hit songs including “Love You I Do,” “Spotlight,” “And I am Telling You,” and a Whitney Houston medley that got the crowd to their feet.

KATE HUDSON AND ALEX RODRIGUEZ GOSSIP

Kate Hudson


Hollywood star Kate Hudson and Yankee legend Alex Rodriguez have reportedly broken up, according to media reports. There has been no comment from either camp, but the funny thing is neither of them has ever confirmed they were dating in the first place. The couple was seen together in public frequently, and Hudson spent the better part of the summer at Rodriguez’s Yankees games at home and on the road, but no one except the press mentioned the word dating. We wonder why two nice people just can not be friends without the press going wild with all the gossip.

ALEX RODRIGUEZ SPEAKS ABOUT MADONNA

Alex Rodriguez is speaking out about his rumored relationship with Madonna, insisting the couple are just "friends." The baseball player and the pop singer have been linked since his ex-wife Cynthia's lawyer alleged the baseball player had an "affair of the heart" with the star. Reports of a romance were further fueled when Madonna announced her breakup from director Guy Ritchie after seven-and-a-half years of marriage in October. Their very quick divorce will be finalized in the new year. Rodriguez has also been spotted supporting the singer at a number of concerts on her Sticky and Sweet tour. But he is denying claims the duo have fallen straight into a romance and finds it hilarious that the world's press has blown their relationship out of context. He tells People.com, "We're friends -- that's it. "I've been to two (of her) concerts, yet I've read that I went to 20. I've also read that we were buying an apartment together. That is absolutely ridiculous and not true."You have to have a sense of humor when it comes to this stuff."

Alex Rodriquez


Yankee champion Alex Rodriguez is sparking more speculation that's he’s dating pop singer Madonna, after posing for party pics with her best friend Gwyneth Paltrow. The couple smiled for the paparazzi at the Fontainebleu’s Grand Opening Party in Miami, Florida on Friday night. The photos have ignited further speculation that the Material Girl has embarked on a relationship with the New York baseball star following the announcement last month that she and director Guy Ritchie are divorcing after nearly eight years of marriage. The sports hero was linked to Madonna after his ex wife Cynthia claims alleged he had an "affair of the heart" with the Material Girl singer. Their divorce was finalized in September. Earlier this month, Madonna reportedly introduced Rodriguez to her inner circle, including Gwyneth Paltrow, after reportedly telling pals he has "the heart of a poet trapped inside an insanely gorgeous body".

I would never reveal information about any donor."Bossche denies claims that Madonna's plans to build a girls' school with the funding will include a Kabbalah-based curriculum. He adds, "We're building a girls' school, which will bring the best resources from around the world with a specific focus on medicine, education and the law."It will be based on the British system -- as is taught in private schools Madonna's children Lourdes and Rocco attend. ... We want programs that can be copied in developing countries throughout the world. Not just a celebrity one-off." A spokesperson for Rodriguez has not returned calls for comment.
