Celebrities Janet Jackson, George Lopez and Sugar Ray Leonard, along with Dr. Drew Pinsky of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," kicked off Hillsides Foster Soles, an online auction of celebrity autographed items and celebrity photograph, last year. Held during Foster Care Awareness Month, the online auction raised awareness of foster care issues. We asked celebrities to once again donate autographed shoes and clothing or other personalized accessories for the Fouth Annual Hillsides Foster Soles.
The kickoff event to launch the auction was held at BarCelona in Pasadena on Wednesday, April 25, 2012. Online auction ran from the date of the Kickoff Event through mid-May.
