Chic Charity From Hollywood Stars

  • WENN
John Travolta, wife Kelly Preston, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Harrison Ford were among stars who attended a glittering benefit party at the home of hip producer Lawrence Bender. The stars paid $1,000 to party at Bender's posh Beverly Hills abode last month, with all proceeds going to a scholarship fund for the families of firefighters affected by the terrorist attacks. The evening's hosts included Vin Diesel, Sylvester Stallone, and Ellen Degeneres. Minnie Driver, Jeff Goldblum and David Hyde Pierce were also in attendance. An hour into the bash, Diesel led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance under an enormous American flag hanging at the back of Bender's pad. The evening was capped up by emotional renditions of God Bless America, America The Beautiful and The Star-spangled Banner by singer Sheryl Crow, leaving barely a dry eye in the house.
