On Saturday, November 5, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is hosting its 18th Annual “Kids for Kids Carnival” in New York City to bring children and families together and raise awareness on the global efforts to eliminate pediatric HIV and AIDS.

Many celebrities support the Foundation’s efforts and are expected to attend the 2011 “Kids for Kids Carnival.” They include, but are not limited to: Bridget Moynahan, Kelly Rutherford, Julianna Margulies, Kyra Sedgwick and David Duchovny.

The fun-filled event will be held at Skylight Soho, transformed into a “Journey around Africa” setting by David Stark Design and Production.
