Fashion model/actress Molly Sims is hosting the 3rd Annual "Night with the Friends of El Faro" Benefit, aimed at raising money to support the children of the orphanage, Casa Hogar Sion, in Tijuana, Mexico.

The star-studded charity event will be held Friday, May 13 in Los Angeles.

Casa Hogar Sion is now home to over 100 children. In addition to providing food and other basic essentials, caring for the children and maintaining the home, the Friends of El Faro and Corazón de Vida Foundation team have raised money for special projects including a new building, a retaining wall and tuition for twelve of the children to attend a private school. The goal of Friends of El Faro is to buy the orphanage and continue to provide financial support and a healthy, nurturing environment for the children.

Special musical performances will be made by Sophie B. Hawkins, Doheny, Wide Awake and Jim Bianco and the guest list includes James Caan, Bradley Whitford, Nikki Cox, Jay Mohr, Josh Duhamel, Poppy Montgomery and more.

The evening is being made possible with the help of Cover Girl cosmetics, Beachbody, and Microsoft, with 95% of the funds go to the children of El Faro. Tickets are available online at www.friendsofelfaro.com
