We are excited to announce our 2010 gala fundraiser will be held April 16, 2010 at The Music Box in Hollywood. Ben Affleck, along with Grant and Lysa Heslov, will host the event. Funds raised from the event will support the Children Mending Hearts arts & cultural exchange programs with homeless and at-risk children in the United States and refugee children suffering from armed conflict worldwide. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will also benefit Women for Women International, which since 1993 has given more than 243,000 women survivors of war and other conflicts the financial support, rights education, job skills training and business development skills they need to build a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

This year’s Host Committee includes Jennifer and Ben Affleck, Michelle Williams, Forest and Keisha Whitaker, Sheryl Crow, Kate Walsh, Quincy Jones, and Hank Azaria.

“It is deeply rewarding to be a part of an organization that makes a profound difference in lives of children, through the power of arts and cultural programs,” said Ben Affleck, Host Committee Member. “I am thrilled to be part of this year’s event.”
