Kathy Griffin admits that she's usually "raising hell," but this week, she was out to raise some money!
The comedian was joined by some familiar faces in Hollywood on Monday night for the Starry Evening of Music, Comedy and Surprises, a joint fundraiser by the UCSF Medical Center and The Painted Turtle Summer camps.
"Yes, I'm going to raise a little hell, hopefully raise a little more money. ...I'm gonna hold myself to it," the 53-year-old My Life on the D-List star, who was hosting the event, told ET. "So, look out big donors, I'm coming to sit on your lap! Male or female, I don't judge. Hashtag, equality."
Not all the celebrities at the event were quite so crass, but all were equally excited to help raise funds for the cause. A-listers such as Annette Bening, Danny DeVito were also in attendance! Plus, there were some performances by Randy Newman, Glee gal Amber Riley and Josh Groban.
The Painted Turtle is a summer camp program where children with severe medical conditions are able to still have fun and spend their summers just being regular kids. There are no costs for the parents or families thanks to events such as these.
The event also provided funds for the UCSF Medical Center, one of the top medical facilities in the world, to construct a brand new hospital that will care for women and children fighting cancer. For more information please visit The Painted Turtle
