Celebs Turn Out For Children’s Hospital Charity

Patients’ moms received makeup makeovers, hair styling, manicures, and massages while they interacted with celebrity moms such as Cindy Crawford, Jamie Lee Curtis, Laura Dern, Bridgette Wilson Sampras, Ming Wen, Jenifer Lewis, Lisa Rinna, Deana Carter and Samantha Mathis.

The event started with a panel discussion by Dr. Mark Krieger of Childrens Hospital’s Neurological Surgical Unit, Terri Apanasewicz of P3 Beauty, Moira Forbes of ForbesLife Executive Women and celebrity moms Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Dern who spoke on behalf of the hospital.

P3 Beauty and ForbesLife Executive Women provided a day for the dedicated moms of Childrens Hospital patients to be pampered, to relax and rejuvenate. This event highlighted the importance of balance and self care, especially amid great personal challenges.

Increase awareness that Childrens Hospital Los Angeles treats children from all
social, financial and ethnic backgrounds. Each year, the nonprofit hospital admits more than 11,000 children – 50 percent under the age of 4.
