Designer Isaac Mizrahi was joined by famous friends including Gabourey Sidibe, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Laura Linney, John Benjamin Hickey, Marcus Samuelsson and Amy Fine Collins, for the the third annual Spring Party, benefitting Good Shepherd Services.
The fabulous evening, which included cocktails, a dinner menu created by Samuelsson and dancing, served as a fundraising event highlighting the work Good Shepherd Services has accomplished over the past year and benefitted the thousands of at-risk children, youth, and families that Good Shepherd Services assists through its various programs.
The evening concluded with an auction of one-of-a-kind Swarovski crystal adorned centerpieces, designed specially by Isaac Mizrahi for the event. All proceeds raised from the auction will benefit the work of Good Shepherd Services.

Beyonce, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, John Legend, Ariana Huffington & Olivia Wilde are just some of the celebrities who are joining forces for a new campaign called “Chime For Change,” a new, global campaign focused on girls’ and women’s empowerment.
It serves to convene, unite and strengthen voices speaking out for girls and women around the world, and to raise funds for non-profit organizations pursuing change.
The video is an effort to help raise awareness of the CHIME FOR CHANGE live concert event on June 1, 2013, at Twickenham Stadium in London, which will be broadcast globally to more than 1 billion people worldwide.
“Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible,” said Beyonce. “I am excited for us to come together on June 1st to bring the issues of Education, Health and Justice for girls and women to the world stage.”

The campaign, started by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, comes a week after the horrific massacre in Newtown and amid the polarizing debate rippling through the U.S. about gun violence and the Second Amendment.
Looking into the camera, they read through a list of some of the 31 similar attacks carried out in the US since Columbine in 1999.
‘Virginia Tech. Tucson. Aurora. Fort Hood. Oak Creek. Newtown. How many more?’ they ask. Watch the moving PSA here:
I’m joining ONE, the global anti-poverty group founded by U2 frontman Bono, for their “It starts with me” campaign, a YouTube video series designed to commemorate World AIDS Day (Dec 1) and inspire global action in the fight against AIDS.
“It starts with me,” which can be viewed on ONE’s YouTube channel, features an initial lineup of video messages and personal stories from a broad range of contributors such as activist Cleve Jones, actors Colin Farrell, Zoe Saldana (Watch!), and Kellan Lutz (Watch!), as well as ONE members and others from around the World, who are committed to the fight against AIDS.
Colin Farrell says of AIDS: “It’s not an African disease; it’s not an American disease. It’s not a disease that is of any country, any region or any continent … or any sexuality, gay, straight …. It’s just a human disease that has taken so much life, and it continues to do so. It doesn’t have to be that way. As one world, let’s end this.”
In conjunction with the video series, ONE is launching a new accountability report that monitors progress made towards the “the beginning of the end of AIDS.” Specifically, the report analyzes progress made on three key targets–the virtual elimination of mother-to-child transmission, 15 million people on treatment, and the reduction of new adolescent/adult HIV infections–and assesses the political, programmatic, and financial contributions made by a variety of stakeholders.
The celebrations kicked off at the glamorous Beverly Hills Hotel with music by DJ Pauly D, and continued the following day at Markham Middle School, where I joined WWE Superstars Mark Henry and Alberto Del Rio, actor Ryan Ochoa, the CEO of the Creative Coalition Robin Bronk, Mayor Villaraigosa and Congresswoman Sanchez to speak to young students about the Be a STAR message:
“Don’t be a bully, Be a STAR… Show Tolerance And Respect!”
