"This Is Us" stars Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz served as Masters of Ceremonies at the 25th annual dinner of the Alliance for Children's Rights.
The event took place at the Beverly Hilton, where Alliance President and CEO Janice Spire was honoured with the National Champion for Children Award, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"The blood of our show is actually drawn from real-life circumstances of generations of family members. So it made sense for us to be here tonight," Moore told audience members.
While Metz added, "Like our show, families that we are honouring today, make constant sacrifices for the love of their children and they're fortunate to have support from the alliance."
The dinner also featured an auction and renditions of "We Are the World" and "Higher and Higher" performed by Ellis Hall and The DC6, presented by MUSE/IQUE artistic director Rachael Worby.
