Actress Eva Longoria will become a chef and waitress for one lucky fan after an auction held at her restaurant Beso in Hollywood on Thursday, March 5.
In an event co-hosted by Danny Masterson, Leah Remini and Terry Seymour, guests such as Simon Cowell, Wilmer Valderrama, Bradley Cooper and Poppy Montgomery raised money for the New York Rescue Workers Detox Project, a program aids 9/11 rescue workers affected by the toxins at Ground Zero.
“You know what? This is an easy thing to do,” Cowell told People.com. “The guys we are raising the money for, they do the hard work.”
Longoria took to the stage to encourage people to take part in the charity auction that took place as part of the evening, and donated a catered dinner for 12 – in which she promises to wear an apron and make tableside guacamole – to the cause. She also donated two tickets to a Spurs/Lakers playoff game, and a Tony Parker jersey.
The package sold for $37,500.
The New York Rescue Workers Detox Project was founded in 2003 by Tom Cruise. It has two clinics, one on 139 Fulton Street, two blocks from the site of the World Trade Center, and another on Long Island. More info can be found here.
