J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath team up with Coach to host a star-studded Santa Monica rooftop fundraiser with big names including Joss Whedon, Jeremy Renner, Kristen Bell and Timothy Olyphant; Christinia Milian and Corey Feldman take in a classic Slick Rick performance at the Music Saves Lives benefit; Jerry Bruckheimer and former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (alongside her astronaut husband) are honored at the Simon Wiesenthal Center's annual National Tribute Dinner at the Beverly Hilton; Kristin Davis hosts a high-end silent charity auction for designer handbags at a Beverly Hills manse once inhabited by Brad & Jen.
