Along with co-host Kevin James, the gala raised money for the Children's Hospital Los Angeles and attracted guests such as Biel’s boyfriend Justin Timberlake, Jesse Metcalfe, Sarah Larson, and Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of “Dancing with the Stars.”
After an evening filled with stilt walkers and exotic dancing, Biel and Timberlake took to the stage to auction off items such as the chance to meet Jeremy Piven on the set of Entourage and a round of golf with Timberlake.
26-year-old Biel co-founded the Make The Difference Network with her family after helping a young fan with muscular dystrophy deal with his illness. When the boy passed away, Biel set up the network to utilize the internet to help charities link up with donors.
“It’s so nice to be able to work with your family,” she told ET. “For me it’s wonderful and something we can do together that makes us feel really good. It’s part of our lives, and we hope that everyone’s inspired to make some type of giving back or volunteering part of their life.”
An online auction for the Make The Difference network is also currently running at eBay.
