Los Angeles, CA (CNS) - Ewan McGregor will be leading other celebrities in a charity gala to benefit orphan children around the world. The "Star Wars" star is set to host the Go Go Gala 2009 on November 20.

Funds raised this year will support orphaned infants in rural China; a kindergarten for HIV/AIDS affected kids in Moshi, Tanzania; a mobile education unit in Haiti; legal rights and health rights education for children in Arusha, Tanzania; the construction of an eco-building and micro-business in the mountains of Peru; and a shelter for refugee youth returning to Liberia, among many others.
Gracing the event are stars Evangeline Lilly, Jessica Alba, Jonah Hill, Cash Warren, Cheryl Tiegs, Jesse Metcalf, John Togo, Danielle Bisutti, Dave Stewart and his Rock Fabulous Quartet, and Cirque du Soleil performers.
The night, to be held at Social Hollywood on November 20, will also honor TOMS shoes founder and chief shoe giver Blake Mycoskie.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to support the charity.
