Goldie Hawn stands up to cancer at 2013 DreamBall

Oscar-winner Goldie Hawn has been keeping off film sets, instead focusing on humanitarian efforts.

The 67-year-old actress' last film role was in "The Banger Sisters," released in 2002.

Ever since then, she's been committed to her Hawn Foundation, a non-profit organization devoted to children's education.

Hawn has also lent her support to other charitable causes, including the fight against cancer. Her mother died in 1994 after a lengthy battle with the disease.

Hawn and her longtime partner Kurt Russell made an appearance at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York Thursday night for the annual DreamBall, hosted by Look Good Feel Better, an organization providing cosmetics and makeovers to women undergoing cancer treatment.

Watch the video above to see Hawn on the red carpet and to hear why she felt it was her duty to attend the charity ball.
