Celebrities Go On Safari at the 21st Annual A Time for Heroes Celebrity Picnic Sponsored by Disney to Benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

hollywoodnews.com: L.A.’s most talked about family carnival and picnic goes on Safari, Sunday, June 13! Close to 100 celebrities will be on hand at the 21st annual A Time for Heroes Celebrity Picnic sponsored by Disney – a benefit for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Each year, Hollywood’s best-known celebrities volunteer their time as “heroes” working carnival-style game booths and activity areas to raise funds to fight pediatric AIDS around the world. In past years, guests have been treated to such one-of-a-kind moments as Tom Cruise in the dunk tank and Jack Nicholson reading in the storytelling area. In addition to interacting with their favorite celebrities, guests are treated to an array of culinary treats from some of Los Angeles’ finest restaurants, including AKASHA, barbrix restaurant, Beacon: An Asian Cafe, Drago Ristorante, and the legendary Pink’s Hot Dogs, among others.

The day will be topped off with a headline performance by multi-platinum recording artist, actor and songwriter Jesse McCartney!

Also to perform – The Rhythm Train with Chad Smith, Leslie Bixler featuring Dick Van Dyke!

A Time for Heroes is expected to raise approximately $1.5 million to help create a generation free of HIV. Pediatric AIDS has essentially been wiped off the face of the map in the United States, however more than
1,200 children still become infected with HIV each day around the world. The Foundation currently works at more than 4,800 sites in 17 countries to bring prevention, care and treatment of HIV/AIDS to children, women and families. Together we can eliminate pediatric AIDS worldwide.
