The stars were out in San Francisco Monday -- all for a good cause. From sports luminaries to A-list actors, they came together to raise money for sick children.

Legendary record producer Lou Adler and his wife Page were the driving force behind the star-studded event. Celebrities joined children on stage at San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall to raise money for the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital and the Painted Turtle, a camp for sick kids.

"It's a wonderful hospital, the Benioff hospital and then, we're able to take them after that or during that and give them a sense of normal," Lou Adler said.

Actress Annette Bening says agreeing to take part in the fundraiser was a no-brainer. She has four children of her own.

"Anybody who has children and children who are well, feel a sense of responsibility towards parents and kids and families that are struggling and that aren't well," she said.

Kathy Griffin wore a Valentino gown with a plunging neckline for the occasion, all in the name of fundraising.

"Renee Zellwegger actually used double-stick tape to make sure my breasts are in the dress properly, but if they fall out and it gets a donation for the Painted Turtle then so be it, let's call it a happy accident," she said.

The celebrities helped raise over $1 million.
