Jenna Dewan Receives Humanitarian of the Year Award from St. Jude

Jenna Dewan made her first public appearance since announcing her split from hubby Channing Tatum last night and it was for a very good cause.

Dewan wore a black floral Zuhair Murad gown to receive her award at the gala in New York City. The event featured cocktails, dinner, a silent auction, dancing, live entertainment, and a raffle.
