Celebrity Parents Show Support at Baby2Baby’s 2nd Annual Gala Event

Celebrity Parents Show Support at Baby2Baby's 2nd Annual Gala EventOn Saturday, November 9th some of Hollywood’s most well-known moms and dads attended the second annual Baby2Baby Gala. Baby2Baby is a Los Angeles-based charity that collects new and gently worn baby clothes, toys, and other essentials and distributes them to needy families around the greater L.A. area. This year’s Gala was held in honor of Drew Barrymore, who recently announced her second pregnancy with husband Will Kopelman. Celebrity moms like Rachel Zoe, Jessica Alba, Nicole Ritchie, Jaime King not only came out to the silent auction to help raise money for distressed families, but Ritchie and Alba also serve as board members for the foundation. Alba’s company, The Honest Company, is a sponsor of Baby2Baby.

Baby2Baby was founded in 2006 by Kelly Patricof and Norah Weinstein who now serve as co-presidents of the foundation. According the official website, “Baby2Baby supplies Los Angeles families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children up to age 12. By distributing new and gently used items to over 50 non-profit organizations, including homeless and domestic violence shelters, Head Start programs and hospitals, Baby2Baby serves over 67,000 children each year.” Patricof and Weinstein’s first Baby2Baby gala, which featured a catered dinner prepared by famous chefs and a silent auction, successfully raised $1 million dollars. Hopefully this year’s gala exceeded the funds raised last year so more children can benefit from the foundation in 2014. Judging by the amount of celebrities who attended Saturday’s soiree, there’s a good chance that Baby2Baby will be able to expand their circle of partners and help more families in need!

It’s always heart-warming to see celebrities dedicate time and effort for important causes. Even though we’re not all big screen actors and actresses, many famous people are still moms and dads, first and foremost, and get involved because they know how crucial it is that babies and children have access to the basic necessities. Thanks to all those who attended the second annual gala, keep up the philanthropy!
