Don’t Miss Out on the John Varvatos for Stuart House Auction! Online Ends on 3/20. Party Photos!

Last weekend there was an amazing party on Sunday with a slew of celebrities at the John Varvatos store on Melrose in West Hollywood. It was a fund-raiser outdoor charity concert hosted by Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow to benefit the UCLA Rape Treatment Center’s Stuart House — the internationally recognized model program serving sexually abused children. An outdoor charity event and concert hosted by Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow— and they raised $700,000 for that charity!

Presented by Chrysler –with a stunning display of the Chrysler 300S

and featuring a kids’ tent by Hasbro,

the concert featured a solo performance by the two-time Grammy Award winner Dave Matthews who played classic favorites such as One Sweet World, You and Me, and Crush. Dave expressed his sincere commitment to the cause by saying,

“There is no worse crime in the world than bringing harm to children and I am here because I wanted to bring attention to this cause.”
