Hollywood’s most famous families - expecting parents, moms, dads, aunts, uncles, and their offspring - visited the gifting suite wonderland built by 55 sponsors. From a Wonka inspired “Candy Bar” and kid spa for younger guests, to luxury baby care items, clothing, Dish Network service, and furniture for parents, this fun filled family event brought celebrity families together to support the Jayneoni Moore Children's Fund's reading programs for low income families.
