THE PARTY A fundraiser for actress and activist Maria Bello’s charity, We Advance, which supports the women of Haiti, held at a private estate in Malibu THE PLAYERS Co-founders Maria Bello, Barbara Guillaume and Aleda Frishman; guests Danny Moder, Brooke Burns, Camille Grammer THE HIGHLIGHTS We Advance supporters gathered under the stars to feast on traditional Haitian fare while learning about the nonprofit’s mission. The meal was prepared with the help of “The Diva of Haiti,” Guillaume, who insisted any money for outside catering would be better spent helping women in her homeland. One expense she did not regret? The plane ticket for her first trip to California and Washington, D.C., to advance the organization’s cause. “I love Malibu!” she proclaimed. When asked about the evening’s most important message, Bello stated, “We’re stronger together than we are alone. By each of us contributing in our way, we can help to empower women throughout the world.” Photos Courtesy of Amy Graves
