The event was organized by Stand up to Cancer, which was founded by a group of media, musical entertainment, and philanthropic leaders including Katie Couric, Sherry Lansing and Laura Ziskin.

LAist spent today on the red carpet at the Kodak Theater, and believe us, it is going to be one star-studded event.

Stay tuned for the red carpet photo essay Monday!
