The live one-hour event will feature many celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Jon Hamm, Kiefer Sutherland, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Mark Harmon, Rob Lowe, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Tony Hale, Dane Cook, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Marg Helgenberger, Matt Passmore, Rob Riggle, Italia Ricci and Bree Turner.

This year, instead of the traditional phone bank staffed by celebrities, the telecast will feature a ‘digital lounge’ where stars will reach out to viewers via phone through social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram.

100% of your donation will support Stand Up to Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs.

The television event airs live tonight at 8 p.m. on FOX 8.
