Celebs Picnic and Play for Pediatric AIDS

06/15/2010 at 03:00 PM ET


Celebrities and their kids came out in force Sunday to support the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation‘s Celebrity Picnic: A Time for Heroes.

Held at the Wadsworth Great Lawn in Los Angeles, families moved from station to station — hosted by Disney, 77kids, Oopsy Daisy and Michael Stars — enjoying music, crafts, carnival games and storytelling. All in all, the event is expected to have raised over $1.3 million towards eradicating pediatric AIDS.

At left, Jaime Pressly and her son Dezi James, 3, wave goodbye after a busy day filled with fun.

The actress is celebrating life as a newlywed — she married lawyer Simran Singh in Sept.

I love Candace Cameron Bure and her beautiful family! Her children are adorable and I love how her daughter always looks her age! Candace is such a classy woman. I have much love and respect for this family.

Yes Dannielynn is so beautiful!! All the pictures are great, and I think Nigel Barker is one of the best looking men I’ve ever seen!

YAY we finally get to see a picture of Mark-Paul Gosselaar and his beautiful children Michael (whom looks just like his daddy – Little Zack Morris!) and Ava (whom looks just like her mommy Lisa). Wished we could see more of them on here (**cough** hint hint **cough**)

Candace looks great as always! She has a handsome husband and beautiful children. Love seeing pictures of this family as well!

Love all of them aside from Candice Cameron, who, along with her brother, have become right-wring religious zealots that I just can’t really understand.

Mark Paul is looking cute and I think it’s the first time I have seen his kids!

Lauren on

Why do you have to bring religion into such a beautiful post? Someone always has to ruin it with something that has nothing to do with the post. I could go on every post and post what I think about the person based on religious or political beliefs, but I won’t b/c that is WRONG.

sadie on

@Lauren – I agree with you!

I admire & respect Candace for her beliefs. She is a wonderful role model.

CelebBabyLover on

Lauren- I agree! Disliking someone’s religious beliefs is NOT a valid reason to dislike them as a person!
