Stars Come Out to Play at 16th Annual Mattel Party on Santa Monica Pier:

Some of entertainment’s biggest stars are coming out to support Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and celebrate the 16th Annual Mattel Party on the Santa Monica Pier Sunday, Sept. 27 benefiting Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA.

Sponsored by Mattel, Inc., the fun-filled, family day includes unlimited rides and carnival games stocked with prizes donated by Mattel; arts and crafts such as face painting; photos with Barbie; and autographs from celebrity guests. The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation is also hosting a Dodger-themed VIP area with lunch donated by Wolfgang Puck Catering.

All guests will enjoy an exciting silent auction area compliments of Toys ‘R Us, featuring items in travel, sports, entertainment, food & wine, fashion and art, such as Dodger dugout seats; private catered dinners; tickets to the Jennifer Lopez show in Las Vegas; a Deer Valley getaway; movie premiere tickets; and a 1 year subscription to FoodStirs, a specialty curated, kid-friendly line of baking and decorating kits launching this October by Co-Founder & Chief Mom, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The FoodStirs silent auction item also includes the opportunity to star in a commercial with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Online fans are invited to bid on select unique and experiential items through Charitybuzz and GiveSmart starting Friday, September 18th at www.partyonthepier.ucla.edu/auction.html.

Mattel Party on the Pier 2015 has already raised over $850,000 in funds, which is an all-time high for the event, and is expected to once again attract a sellout crowd. General admission tickets are available at $150 for adults and $75 for children ages 3 to 12; children under 3 are admitted free. All net proceeds benefit Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA.
