Susan Lucci - Emmy® Award-winning actress now starring in the hit Lifetime series, "Devious Maids" and a former Women Who Care Award honoree, returns as Host of the star-studded luncheon.

“This year’s honorees represent a diverse cross section of the community. Their commitment to giving their time and energy back to society, both in their personal lives and professional fields, is a wonderful testament to their character,” said Loreen Arbus, Founder & Chair of Women Who Care. “It is a great privilege to be able to celebrate their extraordinary accomplishments at the Women Who Care Luncheon, which continues its tradition of honoring female role models who inspire women around the world to achieve their full potential.”

2014 Women Who Care Award Honorees:

Judith Light won her second Tony Award in two years this past year for her work in The Assembled Parties. She is the first consecutive acting winner in almost 20 years and is also the first ever consecutive winner in that category, having previously won for Other Desert Cities. Judith also won Drama Desk Awards for both The Assembled Parties and Other Desert Cities. Judith was also nominated for a Tony Award in 2011 for her performance in Lombardi.

This year, Judith joined the second season of the TNT hit show, “Dallas.” She has just completed the ABC pilot for “The Winklers,” starring opposite Henry Winkler. Judith’s television career began with her two-time Best Actress Emmy® Award-winning turn in “One Life to Live.” She then went on to star on the hit comedy series “Who's the Boss?” Up until 2010, she was seen on the ABC-TV series “Ugly Betty,” for which she received an Emmy nomination. Simultaneously, she co-starred on NBC’s long-running drama “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in the recurring role of Supreme Court Judge Elizabeth Donnelly. Judith has also starred in “Phenom” and “The Simple Life”, created by long-time manager/producer Herb Hamsher, “The Stones,” and in over 15 television movies, including her role as Ryan’s mother, Jeanne, in “The Ryan White Story.”

Judith has starred in the independent films The Shoemaker, Ira & Abby, and Save Me, a 2007 film which she also produced with Herb Hamsher through their production company, Tetrahedron Productions.

Judith is a board member and advocate for many organizations and charities representing AIDS-related and human rights issues including: Broadway Cares: Equity Fights AIDS, The Names Project/The AIDS Memorial Quilt, The AIDS Memorial Grove, CDC’s Business Responds to AIDS/Labor Responds to AIDS, Hollywood Health and Society, Faith in America, Project Angel Food, The Matthew Shepard Foundation, The National Aids Memorial Grove, The Point Foundation, The Rome Chamber Music Festival, and The Trevor Project.

China Machado was born and raised in Shanghai, China, and moved to South America at age sixteen, and then to Paris where she became a house model with Givenchy. She went on to be the highest-paid runway model in Europe, working for couture houses including Balenciaga, Pierre Cardin, Roberto Cappucci and many more all over Europe. She was brought to New York by Oleg Cassini, and met Diana Vreeland. There she became the first non-Caucasian to appear on the cover of a major American fashion magazine when Richard Avedon shot her for Harper's Bazaar in 1959. Avedon called her 'probably the most beautiful woman in the world.' 

China went on to become Harper's Senior Fashion Editor and then Creative Fashion Director for the magazine for over a decade, and later was Fashion and Beauty Director for the first five years of Lear's Magazine, including producing its prototype issue and creating its Clio Award-winning advertising campaign. She has been named one of the “50 women in 50 years of Fashion” by The Fashion Group.

She has been a fashion consultant for print and TV commericals, for companies ranging from Revlon and Max Factor to Coca-Cola and Kleenex, as well as producing two major fashion shows for Chanel, the Met Opera and LA Music Center. She has been the style designer for numerous movie stars including Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Catherine Deneuve, and Sophia Loren.

Her designing has included a clothing line for the Henry Bendel studio which was sold nationally, as well as designing over 200 sweaters for her China Machado sweater company, which were twice nominated for the Dupont Fashion Awards. She has produced several fashion movies for NBC, Hallmark and Hanai Mori.

China's more recent ventures include her real estate redevelopment, the opening and running of “The Country Bazaar” general store, and an art gallery for photography in Watermill. In the past three years, “W” magazine did a 30-page story on her which caused a snowballing effect as since then there have been over 100 stories on her all over the world. She was featured in the wonderful Cole Haan's “Born in 1928” campaign to mark its 85th anniversary in 2013, which was a sensation around the world. China is currently working on her autobiography.

Julia Monk, Senior Vice President and global director of hospitality interiors, is based in HOK’s Shanghai office. She also serves on HOK’s marketing board.
