Celebs kid around

Fund-raiser benefits Caring for Children & Families with AIDS

Never are industryites as humane as when it comes to a good cause.

Every other day it seems, celebs lend their voices and wallets to charity; on Sunday, they even proffered their children.

It was in good fun, of course — a fashion show emceed by “Girlfriends” star Tracee Ellis Ross benefiting Caring for Children & Families with AIDS — and the Hollywood tots and tweens were returned by afternoon’s end. Jaden Slater, the son of honorary chairs Christian Slater and Ryan Haddon, Arianna Huffington’s children Christina and Isabella and Cindy Margolis‘ young son Nicholas all took to the runway at the Regent BevWilshire during the fifth annual Lullabies & Luxuries fund-raiser.

Still a kid herself at just 17 years of age, “What I Like About You” thesp Amanda Bynes hosted the Babes in Toyland themed event, which drummed up $220,000 for CCFA. “I wanted to show my generation that it does not matter how old, or how young you are; you can make a difference at any point in your life. That’s why I agreed to be here today,” she told Daily Variety. Some 600 guests were on hand, including Shiva Rose, MAC AIDS fund’s Lilia Garcia-Leyva, CCFA’s Jackie Gelfand; “Scrubs” creator Bill Lawrence, wife Christa Miller and daughter Charlotte; KingWorld topper Michael King; and the cast of Nickelodeon’s “All That.”
