BOSTON, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IDEA Media announced today that Sarah Jessica Parker, Actress, Producer, Writer, Fashion Icon, Designer, Entrepreneur, and IT Fanatic, known for popularizing the latest new technologies on HBO's Sex and the City, and tech brands spokesperson, will be hosting EuraMedia's first annual awards ceremony. The event is dedicated to honoring Russia's 'New Elite': Entertainers, Innovators, Entrepreneurs, and Executives who have paved the way for the recent boom in these markets and who will represent the industry as it expands and grows. The show will also feature relevant a-list musical acts and celebrity guests from the West and Russia.  Partial proceeds from sponsorships, as well as all proceeds from an auction featuring Hollywood and Soviet film and fashion memorabilia, will go to Russian and US charities benefitting children suffering from cancer.

Parker, via her agent and Brett Galley, President of, which is organizing all VIP events for the Summit, wrote today, "[I] graciously accept this [opportunity]."  Parker is expected to comment in the coming days.  Matthew Goldstein, director of The EuraMedia 2012 Summit, adds, "We are thrilled to have Sarah as host for this elite ceremony and believe that everything about her is emblematic of the Summit itself. It is very important that this event will feature proceeds going towards charity, especially such a worthwhile cause, as it is of key importance to associate this burgeoning new industry with philanthropic causes.  We can encourage people for merit-based accomplishments and boost their own egos and brands while simultaneously aiming for a greater good.  After all, if the best minds are not able to survive and be cultivated, it is unlikely that they will produce the Apples and Microsofts of the future."
