Ben Affleck is set to host a massive charity fundraising gala event next month with a host committee that includes Jennifer Garner, Michelle Williams, Forest and Keisha Whitaker, Sheryl Crow, Kate Walsh, Quincy Jones and Hank Azaria.
The Children Mending Hearts 2010 Fundraising Gala, sponsored by Reality Cares, will take place on April 16 at the Music Box, Fonda Theater, in Hollywood. Funds raised from the event will support the Children Mending Hearts arts & cultural exchange programs with homeless and at-risk children in the United States and refugee children suffering from armed conflict worldwide. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will also benefit Women for Women International, which since 1993 has given more than 243,000 women survivors of war and other conflicts the financial support, rights education, job skills training and business development skills they need to build a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.
The night’s entertainment will include Five For Fighting and Band From TV, the all-star charity group that includes James Denton, Greg Grunberg, Adrian Pasdar, Bob Guiney, Scott Grimes and Jesse Spencer.
“It is deeply rewarding to be a part of an organization that makes a profound difference in lives of children, through the power of arts and cultural programs,” said Ben Affleck. “I am thrilled to be part of this year’s event.”
Tickets start at $500. For more information, visit the official website.
