Stars Help Celebuzz and JCPenney Celebrate the Joy of Giving (PHOTOS)

By: Betsy Waldman / December 16, 2009

It was an evening of seasonal merriment, style, charity and star power at West Hollywood’s Sunset Tower Hotel on Tuesday night, as showbiz’s best and brightest joined Celebuzz and JCPenney for their Joy of Giving event.

Las VegasMolly Sims, Dancing With the StarsSamantha Harris (with husband Michael and daughter Josselyn in tow), Bachelorette couple Trista and Ryan Sutter (who brought along their adorable baby daughter Blakesley Grace), and Make It Or Break It‘s Candace Cameron Bure were among the notables who joined us to ring in the holiday cheer.

But the evening, which was also sponsored by Warner Home Video’s Four Christmases, was about more than music, merriment, good food and drink (including wine from Four Vines Winery, desserts from Nothing Bundt Cakes, and Ojai gourmet Olive Oils) and making last-minute gift requests to Santa; the Joy of Giving event was in support of the Friends of El Faro organization, which provides crucial assistance to the children of Tijuana Casa Hogar Sion orphanage. (Sims serves as a spokesperson for the organization.)
