Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara

Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara will co-chair the John Varvatos Stuart House benefit.


John Varvatos has tapped newlyweds Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello to serve as the honorary chairs of its annual Stuart House benefit.

The 13th annual fundraiser will be held at the John Varvatos West Hollywood boutique at 8800 Melrose Ave. at Robertson on April 17 at noon.

The event closes the street for an afternoon of live music, shopping, live and silent auctions, food, kids’ activities, and other festivities. During the event, 25 percent of all the proceeds are donated to Stuart House, a program created by the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center to serve the needs of sexually abused children. All Stuart House services are free to child victims and their families.

In addition to Vergara and Manganiello, the event will feature a live performance by Sammy Hagar, a rock guitarist and singer who was the one-time lead singer of Van Halen.
