Other notable guests at the event will include Jessica Alba, Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland, Russell Simmons, Sacha Baron Cohen and Molly Sims.

Garner, who has been a longtime supporter of Baby2Baby, helping the organization distribute five million diapers to low-income children over the past two years, recently opened up about working hard to make sure that her children grow up with the same passion for helping others.

"I give it all I can," Garner told Today Parents about how seriously she takes her role as a mother.

"I don't think empathy is something you can drill in someone's head," she noted. "You have to have faith that while your kids can seem to be selfish and concerned only about the word 'mine' sometimes, overall, they are watching you really carefully, and if you care about other people, they will too."

"I try to be the best version of myself and to have faith that they're watching me as carefully when I do something right as they do when I roll through a stop sign," she added.
