Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard kicked off the evening with a bit of humor, recalling that their own two kids were born "out of a contractual obligation with Samsung" because, "They thought that we would be more relatable when selling refrigerators and washing machines." 

Following the married couple's opening remarks were speeches by Hudson, Alba, McConaughey and Kelly Rowland, in addition to a performance from Boyz II Men.  The entire event was sponsored by Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors Foundation, John Paul Mitchell Systems and Volvo.

During Garner's acceptance speech, she reflected on her own experience growing up in near-poverty. "My mom grew up dirt poor with 10 siblings, no running water and no electricity in dustbowl depression in Oklahoma," she said, adding, "I grew up one generation, one holler away from poverty."

The actress concluded, "If you tell the world that we are gathering here tonight all dressed up like prom... they might think we're crazy. But the truth is, I've seen this message in action. The tiniest thing can tip the balance from past hope to chance."

Also supporting the event were Miranda Kerr and her fiancé Evan SpiegelSelma Blair, Julie BowenRachel Zoe, Busy Philipps, Camilla BelleMolly Sims, Rachel Bilson, Jaime King and Samantha Ronson.
