This past weekend Jessica Capshaw, Molly Tarlov, and Jennifer Love Hewitt attended Susan's Magic Makers at the beach in Santa Monica. The event benefitted Camp Kesem, an organization that supports kids affected by a parent's cancer. 

Susan’s Magic makers was  inspired by Susan Nelson Fleiss, a young mother who lost a brief battle to colon cancer and left three young children behind. Susan’s Magic Makers honors visionaries who have turned the tragedy of cancer diagnosis into triumph and are bettering the lives of all those affected by cancer. 

Saturday night’s beach gala was hosted by philanthropists and entertainment industry leaders and was attended by over 500 people.

Molly Tarlov of MTV’s “Awkward” hosted an event program with speeches from Camp Kesem CEO, Jane Saccaro, as well as Eric Fleiss of Regent Properties, a Camp Kesem counselor, a Luminary Bag Tribute ceremony led by actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, and a paddle raise led by Sam Brown from New Line, which generated over $100,000 in donations in nine minutes.

Actor Michael Landes and actress Jessica Capshaw also attended the event, which honored LIVESTRONG CEO, Doug Ulman.
