Sofia Vergara is taking a stand…
The 49-year-old Colombian actress and former Modern Family star will serve as a co-host for this year’s the seventh biennial televised fundraising special Stand Up To Cancer.
Vergara will co-host the event alongside Anthony Anderson, Ken Jeong & Tran Ho.
Set to air Saturday, August 21 at 8:00 pm ET, this year’s Stand Up To Cancer event will be broadcast from Los Angeles and air simultaneously on more than 60 participating media platforms across the United States and Canada.
The telecast will also be available to stream live and on-demand on several streaming platforms.
The event, co-executive produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, will see performances by Common, Brittany Howard and more artists that will be announced at a later date.
Stand Up To Cancer seeks to raise funds to support research and new treatments of cancer, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, which has affected nearly every aspect of cancer care and research.
The live-event is produced by Done + Dusted and Stand Up To Cancer’s production team.
