Bridges Family Selected for "Outstanding Family Award"

Stargate star Beau Bridges and his family are to be honored at the Fourth Annual Champions for Families Awards Dinner at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, Ocotber 21, for instilling family values. According to an announcement at ET Online, Bridges and his wife Wendy will be accepting the “Outstanding Family Award” on behalf of the Bridges family at the benefit being held by El Nido Family Centers, a non-profit organization that “strives to empower at-risk children, youth and families in L.A.”

“The family values that their parents, Dorothy and Lloyd Bridges, instilled in them have been passed on to three generations of Bridges. These very traits of gaining self-esteem and achieving goals are also the very core of El Nido’s programs that support and strengthen families,” stated El Nido.

The Bridges family also includes this year’s Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, who can next be seen in the highly-anticipated Tron: Legacy that will be premiering December 17, 2010.

In the meantime, we’re anticipating the outcome of the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards that will be televised live on NBC at 8/5 PT on Sunday, August 29. Bridges has been nominated for his guest starring role in The Closer episode “Make Over” as the cross-dressing Detective George Andrews.
