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."
