Jason Patric’s ‘Stand Up For Gus’ Fundraiser
Spotted: Matt Damon, Mel Gibson, Jon Hamm, Chelsea Handler, Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Noth, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Topher Grace and David Spade came together for an intimate evening of comedy and entertainment on Wednesday, November 13th to raise awareness for the charity “Stand Up For Gus,” founded by actor Jason Patric who was stripped of his rights as a parent after an outdated statute for sperm donors was applied to Patric simply because Gus’ mother and he were unmarried and used IVF to conceive.
The star-studded evening featured performances by Sarah Silverman, Craig Ferguson, and Jim Gaffigan with a surprise musical guest Silversun Pickups, and Chris Masterson providing the music for the after-party.
120 VIP guests joined together to show their support for Patric’s ongoing fight for parental rights of his biological son, Gus, while bringing light to the many others who share in this same fight around the world. All proceeds will fund legal assistance for broken families and the alienated parents desperately trying to maintain a relationship with their children.
