Photo Gallery: Children Mending Hearts Gala

Scroll through photos from Sunday's event in Pacific Palisades, which benefited an organization that works to empower children to help others.

Celebrities gathered in Pacific Palisades Sunday to support Children Mending Hearts, a nonprofit organization that works to provide educational and arts programs for disadvantaged kids.

The Children Mending Hearts 4th Annual Spring Benefit was reportedly held at a private residence in the Palisades.

Stars like Patricia Heaton, Ben Affleck and Tobey Maguire were present to support the cause. Surfer Bethany Hamilton was also honored at the event. Hamilton inspired many after she lost her left arm during a shark attack in 2003, but remained extremely positive, according to her website.

Children Mending Hearts was founded in 2008 and, according to its website, aims to support arts programs for needy children worldwide. The organization also works to empower kids to impact other children's lives in a positive way ... building empathy and, as the website states, global citizenry.
