Stars such as Ashlee Simpson, Bella Thorne and Chad Michael Murray attended the celebrity-filled event ‘A Time For Heroes Picnic’!
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation raised more than $1 million dollars yesterday, at its 22nd Annual “A Time For Heroes Celebrity Picnic” sponsored by Disney. Stars like Ashlee Simpson, Ashley Tisdale, Bella Thorne and Denise Richards were having a great time playing games while helping the charity raise money. Ashlee even brought Bronx and played with him between chats with fans!
Although it was a picnic with games and music catered towards children, the adult celebs were having a blast and participating in numerous activities, often with their children! Ashlee was having a ball at the arts and crafts table with her son Bronx, who also played with race cars at the Disney’s CARS 2 Raceway. Ashlee found time in between smiling and signing pictures for her fans to spend some quality time with her main man, Bronx. What a cute mother and son outing! Ashlee was so popular with the fans, they lined up to take pictures with the actress. Eventually security was called over but Ashlee kept smiling and snapping pics while also keeping an eye on her blond curly-haired boy.
Disney stars were everywhere at the event including, Ashley Tisdale working the Imbee station and Nicole Anderson who worked the bean bag toss. Nicole took pics with her fans but turned into a fan herself when speaking with former True Blood actress Ashley Jones, who sported TOMS sunglasses, supporting yet another cause that will help save one person’s eyesight with every pair purchased.
Another True Blood actor, Joe Manganiello , helped out at the 77 Kids American Eagle Denim Decorating booth with his fiancée. Denise Richards brought her girls with her to paint denim! Chad Michael Murray was spotted volunteering at the rock-climbing wall alongside his fiancée. He was super friendly to all his fans big and small, taking photos while guiding them over to the rock wall.
At the food tents we saw Chuck actor Zachary Levi dancing along to the African music that was being performed on stage. Bella Thorne ran around with her girlfriends in a brightly-colored outfit. The whole day really was an energetic affair as people worked towards an amazing cause!
$15 prevents a mother from giving her child AIDS, and yesterday these celebrities raised $1.1 million! How incredible!
What do you think about this event? Would it bring out the child in you?
