Elizabeth Ailes, board member of Catholic Big Sisters and Big Brothers, owner of the Hudson Valley Freedom Press and wife of Fox News CEO, Roger Ailes, received the Christmas Angel Award from his Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, at the 68th Annual Cardinal's Christmas Luncheon on Wednesday, December 18.

The event was held in the Grand Ballroom of The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Midtown Manhattan.

The Ladies of Charity of the Archdiocese of New York and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York jointly sponsored the event.

Cardinal Dolan, Honorary Chairman of the luncheon, along with Nancy Waters of the Ladies of Charity, presented the Spirit of Saint Nicholas Award to Pat and Lou DiCerbo.

The luncheon included performances by noted Soprano Jamie Barton and the Our Lady of Pompeii School Chorus from New York City. Students from St. John Chrysostom School presented a tableau, narrated by Cardinal Dolan with a reading from the Gospel according to St. Luke.

Now in its 68th year, this traditional holiday event raises funds in support of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York's programs that help thousands of needy women and children of all religions throughout the 10 counties of the Archdiocese.

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
