Stifel III, and Francesco Clark were joined by special guests Matthew Reeve, Alexandra Reeve Givens and Will Reeve, Jane Krakowski (NBC's 30 Rock) Anthony Edwards, Caroline Rhea, Richard Kind, Tinsley Mortimer, Matthew Settle (CW's Gossip Girl), Amanda Righetti (CBS's The Mentalist), Paul Teutul Sr. (TLC's American Chopper), Rita Cosby, Platinum Recording Singer-Songwriter Colbie Caillat, Victoria's Secret model Anne Vyalistyna, Style expert Mary Alice Stephenson, Miss USA Kristen Dalton, Miss Teen USA Stormi Henley, and Semi-Homemade chef Sandra Lee, among many others at this year's star-studded charity event.
