Catwalk for Charity brings Milan to LA, Featuring Valentino, Pucci, Missoni, Li Cari, and Blumarine. These designers have all come to honor Brad Pitt and Susan Sarandon with humanitarian awards.

Those who didn't fly to Milan to see Spring 2007 will surely be at the Catwalk for Charity event. These designers have also, donated incredible garments to the silent auction along with Dior and Dolce & Gabbana.

The first annual catwalk for Charity formed by designers that want to make a difference in the world and honor others who have the same goals. Catwalk for Charity, strongly believes that all Americans can make an enormous difference in the world of child labor. Child labor is a pervasive problem throughout the world, especially in developing countries. Africa and Asia together account for over 90 percent of total child employment. Working children are the objects of extreme exploitation in terms of toiling for long hours for minimal or even no pay. Their work conditions are especially severe. Many of these children endure lives of pure deprivation.

Event organizers say, "Every American should consider this when they make a purchase. Only buy from countries that have child labor laws that are enforced. USA, Italy, Brazil and Europe are countries that have laws that are enforced. Made in the USA, and Made in Italy labels mean your garment was made by an adult not a child. Your garments shouldn't be made by a child."

Founded and produced by Li Cari, Catwalk for Charity benefiting Childrens Hospital Los Angeles has set a goal of $1,000,000. Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is a special a place where children have been cared for, and cured, for more than 100 years. Committed to helping children lead healthier, happier lives today. Childrens Hospital Los Angeles improves the lives of children every day – children who are "…living proof that what there doing is making a world of difference. Childrens Hospital Los Angeles treats more than 58,000 children a year in its Emergency Department. It admits more than 11,000 children a year to the hospital, and nearly 50 percent of those admissions are children under four years of age.
