Washington, March 7 (ANI): Actress Eva Longoria Parker turned chef at her restaurant and donated an in-home dinner to raise funds for charity.

The Desperate Housewife star recently put the catered dinner, along with tableside service of her own guacamole, for auction to raise funds for the New York Rescue Workers Detox Project at her Beso in Hollywood.

Longoria, who tied the knot with ace basketball player Tony Parker in 2007, encouraged guests, including Bradley Cooper and Simon Cowell, to bid for the cause with a personal appearance.

She further cooked up the deal by adding two tickets to a Spurs/Lakers playoff game, and a Tony Parker jersey.

All in all, 37,500 dollars were raised to help 9-11 rescue workers who fell victim to the toxins at Ground Zero.

“You know what? This is an easy thing to do. The guys we are raising the money for, they do the hard work,” People magazine quoted Cowell as saying. (ANI)
