[size=34]Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton join George Clooney and Oprah at the Carousel of Hope Ball benefiting the Children's Diabetes Foundation[/size]

The Carousel of Hope Ball is traditionally held every two years in Los Angeles, California at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, but this year of course proved different. 
For the first time since its inception in 1978, the 34th annual edition of the starry fundraiser gala went virtual, welcoming celebrities including Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, George Clooney, Oprah and Tom Hanks via video meeting on Saturday night.
The event, this year hosted by Jay Leno as the master of ceremonies, has to date raised over $110 million dollars towards finding a cure for diabetes.

Thanks, PAN. Yes, we did know he was going to do this, but I'm bad at remembering dates of when he's going to do things!

Hey, there's an idea for a new site feature: the George Clooney Calendar! You could add expected events, openings, show appearances, whatever.

I remember doing that here years ago, but then I got tired of updating it. Let me see if I can find a system that everyone can edit.
