Dushku honored at Global Generation Awards
Watertown’s Eliza Dushku was in town on Saturday night with her boyfriend, former Celtic Rick Fox, to accept an honor at the first-ever Global Generation Awards at the Fenway Center at Northeastern University. Dushku, best known for her role on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’’ was praised for her humanitarian work in Uganda, where she’s traveled with her mother, Suffolk University associate professor Judith Dushku. Eliza’s fellow honorees were Senator John F. Kerry; Gillian Sorensen of the UN Foundation; and “Invisible Children’’ filmmaker Jason Russell. The event coincided with the Millennium Campus Conference, where 1,000 students from across the country gathered to discuss public service. Attendees who helped honor the local do-gooders included Kerry’s daughter Vanessa, nonprofit consultant Doris Yaffe, Tom Brady’s activist sister Nancy, the Jenzabar Foundation’s Bob Maginn, Larry Rasky of Rasky Baerlein, Wendy Pearre of the Fessenden School, and poet and singer K’naan.
