CULVER CITY, Calif. -- Chrissy Teigen has received an award for using her celebrity to raise awareness for low-income children and families.
Teigen's husband John Legend presented her with the Giving Tree Award at the star-studded Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday night.
Katy Perry and Kobe Bryant were among the celebrities who attended and donated thousands of dollars toward the cause.
Baby2Baby is a non-profit that looks for high-profile celebrities to highlight the organization's mission of helping provide basic necessities to children living in poverty.
Baby2Baby has distributed more than 70 million items to children in homeless shelters, domestic violence programs and foster care, as well as to others who have lost everything in the wake of disaster.
Paula Abdul closed the event by performing some of her popular songs, including "Cold Hearted" and "Opposites Attract."
