Among the celebs that came out to support the event was American Idol Season 2 finalist, Kimberly Caldwell. LookToTheStars.org caught up with Caldwell while on the red carpet. When asked what charity is near and dear to her, she replied, “Camp Kendall is a charity which is for children who are infected or affected by AIDS. I’ve been involved for a very long time. My sister is a volunteer.” She and her sister put on dance marathons over at UCLA for fundraisers. “Those kids mean more to me than anything.”
