A combination celebration and charitable event, the party benefited the “1 Million Good Nights” pledge drive for Pajama Program, a non-profit organization providing pajamas and bedtime books for children living in group homes, women’s and family shelters, and foster care. As celebrity guests entered, they received information about the group and dropped off new sets of cozy pajamas for the kids. Guests were also encouraged to promote the donation drive with special hashtags, and children’s fashion clothing brand Carter’s pledged to donate an additional set of pajamas up to 1,000 for every social media post tagged with #KathySuite and #1MGoodNights.
