Eva's Fab Auction For a Good Cause

09/22/2006 at 11:00 AM ET

We love it when celebs take the time to raise money for their favorite charities — and Eva Longoria and her friends are helping with an online auction benefitting Padres Contra El Cancer (Parents Against Cancer), which is committed to improving the quality of life for Latino children with cancer and their families. Not only can you bid on a walk-on role on Desperate Housewives, but you can bid on spending some quality time with her glam squad. Go on a shopping spree with stylist extraordinaire Robert Verdi (left, with Eva), get made over by makeup artist Elan Bongiorno, or get your hair transformed by Ken Paves (otherwise known as Jessica Simpson’s hairdresser and BFF). Also up for grabs are a trip to see American Idol, batting practice with L.A. Dodger Nomar Garciaparra, and Eva’s Emmy presenter gift basket. The bidding will continue through October 10. What are you waiting for?

If it was such a good cause, it would help all children — not just ones of a certain ethnicity. Sick kids are sick kids, whether they are white, black, hispanic, or any other colour of the rainbow. There shouldn’t be any selective help.

i’m sorry. i know this article was in regards to helping people, but the main thing i picked up on was robert verdi being called a ‘stylist extrodinaire’?!?!??! as if. this guy always looks horrible, like one big ‘trendy’ MESS w/an ugly pair of sunglasses on his head. and yet he’s qualified to comment on others’ appearances? guess that explains paris hilton’s look. it IS her stylist’s fault after all. whew–what a relief!! all this time i was thinking that she just didn’t have any taste or class.

I agree with Alexandra. I think it’s great that Eva wants to help sick children, but what about the other kids that are not Latino? White,Black,Asian.. you name it, all of them have sick children who’s parents can not afford treatment. Thank God for a place like St. Jude’s Childrens Hopsital that does not look at the race of a child. Every life is precious, and this just makes me think that Eva thinks other childrens lives are not as meaningful as Latino children.

I agree that charities should be aimed at all communities and ethnicities but give her a break at least she is contributing in a positive way and showing that she cares about others unlike most celebs who are rich and selfish and unaware of what is going on in the world around them!

mimi on

wow i never knew there was anything wrong with someone helping out the community they came from. She IS latina ws why not?

fall fashionista on

i know everyone is arguing about why eva is not helping every race of children w/ cancer but, comon she is doing a nice job of even helping out sick kids!

so stop doggin her does it really matter ?, at least she is even helping kids at all!

Tia on

i ove eva and love that she is doing this! there are tons of groups helping African Americans specifically so it’s great that she’s helping Latinos! at least eva’s doing charity work at all, and he stuff for auction is amazing! though i agree with jen, what is robert verdi wearing??

JEM on

My question is, why is do people care about Eva? Where was the interest before Desperate Housewives?

She’s up there with Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton with their superior acting skills.
