    Last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom, stars took to the red carpet to support Keep A Child Alive at their annual Black Ball fundraiser. The Keep A Child Alive foundation provides medical care and support to children and their families affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and the organization's staff members include co-founder Alicia Keys, Padma Lakshmi, and Iman. This year the glamorous event specially honored activists Simon Fuller, Jackie Branfield, and Queen Latifah for their pioneering work in AIDS research and advocacy.
