When Leona Lewis heard that Hopefield Animal Sanctuary was in need of funds, she rallied support and donations via Twitter. Now, she will host a star-studded fundraising event for the sanctuary.


According to Look To The Stars
, the benefit will take place at a private residence in the Hollywood Hills tomorrow night. Along with Lewis, celebrities attending to help out the animals include Natasha Bedingfield, Nicole Scherzinger, Perez HiltonPaula AbdulJeremy PivenKristin Cavallari, Matthew Morrison, and Kevin McHale. Lewis is hoping to raise enough money for the organization by Christmas, and one hundred percent of the event’s proceeds will go to Hopefield.

On her website, Lewis wrote, “Since the first day I visited Hopefield Animal Sanctuary I knew it would become a big part of my life. The work they are doing to save these abused and neglected animals is essential, they would simply have nowhere else to go if this sanctuary wasn’t here. At Hopefield these animals get to live out their lives peacefully and free from abuse. I have made it my mission to rebuild and rescue this sanctuary and help these animals who deserve better but I need your help!”

If you are interested in helping but didn’t receive an invitation to the celebrity-packed event tomorrow, you can donate or find other ways to help here.
