Designer John Varvatos opened the doors to his West Hollywood store for the “Shop to Show Your Support” benefit for Stuart House. Stars like a David Schwimmer, Brooke Burke, Patrick Dempsey and Zoe Saldana showed up to share their support of the nationally recognized program of the Rape Treatment Center.
“Stuart House is this internationally recognized model program in this community were child victims of sexual abuse and rape can go to seek all kinds of services and support — 24 hours a day, year round, free of charge,” David explained to Give Back Hollywood at the event.
“Every year there is a build-up. We start this six years in advance. And hey, we’re in L.A. and it’s another amazing day,” John explained. “I just have this morning — and Gale sent me a note last night — that this is going to be by far our biggest and best. I just have this amazing feeling today.”
“We have to address issues like this,” Zoe said. “We have to encourage our government to create harsher punishments for people that hurt children in such a way. By using our voice and supporting and celebrating organizations that are still working to aid and help children, you’re helping your community, you’re helping your society and you’re helping your country.”
The event featured live music, shopping, live and silent auctions, delicious food, activities for children and fashionable festivities!
