Celebrities from sports, TV and film are expected to attend the 5th anniversary gala of the Cathy’s Kids Foundation later today, Friday April 17.

The gala starts at 6pm at the Roosevelt Hotel Grand Ballroom on Hollywood Blvd, and celebrities expected include the entire Laker team including Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher, as well as Dania Ramirez, Nicky Hilton, David Katzenberg, Milla Jovovich, David Arquette, Audrina Patridge, Paris Hilton, Sanaa Lathan, Shawne Merrima, Brandon Marshall, Omar Epps, Christina Milian, Al Shear, Sean Riggs, Jason Steed, Black Thomas, Claudia Jordan, Faith Evans and many others.
