Rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube has been honoured for his work on behalf of the homeless and poor.

The former NWA member received his award when he attended Saturday's (09APR05) BUTTERFLY BALL, an annual fundraiser for CHRYSALIS, which helps the homeless and economically disadvantaged get on their feet and become self-sufficient.

Cube, who was honoured alongside DISNEY Marketing Chief OREN AVIV and 20TH CENTURY FOX President DANA WALDEN, says, "Normally I'm a little sceptical about this stuff, but to go (to downtown Los Angeles) and see what they do, I'm glad to be a part of it."

Tim Allen and Brett Ratner were among the stars in attendance.
