Call to Cause: The Stuart House Benefit
March 13, 2012 | by —Michelle Ward | Homepage
With a healthy mix of stars and rockers, such as Cindy Crawford, Steven Tyler, Rachel Zoe, Dave Matthews, and Justin Theroux, the Ninth Annual Stuart House Benefit was the place to be last Sunday. Held just steps away from the John Varvatos flagship, on the corner of Robertson Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, the day-long benefit comprised a street fair of children’s activities, live auctions, shopping, food trucks, and a rare solo performance by Matthews. (The musician and close friend of Varvatos flew down from his Seattle home just for the occasion.) The John Varvatos store was open and a portion of the day’s menswear sales were donated to Stuart House, the UCLA children’s rape treatment center. In all, a whopping $700,000 was raised for the cause.
