E!Online shares the exciting news that Jennifer will be honored at this year’s Baby2Baby Gala!
Major A-listers are going to be attending the 5th annual Baby2Baby Gala in honor of one of their dearest friends.
This year the event will be honoring Jennifer Garner, who will be receiving the Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award for her support and ongoing dedication to children in need around the world. Over the past two years, Garner has helped Baby2Baby distribute 5 million diapers to the low-income children the organization serves.
Supporting Garner at the event will be Julie Bowen, Selma Blair and Rachel Zoe.
Other attendees include J.J. Abrams, Michelle Monaghan, Jordana Brewster, Busy Philipps, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jaime King, Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart and Soleil Moon Frye.
Baby2Baby, along with sponsor John Paul Mitchell Systems, will host the 5th Annual Baby2Baby Gala.
Baby2Baby co-presidents Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein said the first name that popped in their minds for the award was none other than Garner.
“We are so proud to honor Jennifer for her commitment to supporting low-income children” Patricof and Weinstein said in a statement. “She is quite possibly the biggest advocate for these issues we have ever come across.”
“She has worked tirelessly for seven years to help combat children’s poverty through education and leadership,” they continued. “Just this past year, she helped us secure over 2 million diapers to distribute to the families in our program across the country. We are beyond grateful for her immeasurable contributions to children all over the world and to the children of Baby2Baby.”
Garner joins previous winners including Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore and Kate Hudson.
