Before the event kicked into gear, Longoria showed off her taste for fashion in a black sleeve-less dress with hints of sheer fabric along the waist and right thigh.

The Desperate Housewives alum, 44, rounded out her ensemble with black open-toe heels and had her long dark brown tresses styled long, straight and with a part on the slight left.

Robert and Linell Shapiro created the Brent Shapiro Foundation and Brent's Club following their son's drug-related death in 2005 at the age of 24 to honor his life and promote prevention and awareness of chemical dependency. 

The foundation has raised over $12 million for drug over the last 14 years.

Shapiro, 77, came to public prominence as one of OJ Simpson's so-called Dream Team lawyers, during his 1995 criminal case for the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Some of the other esteemed guests on hand for the charity gala included Kathy and Rick Hilton, Priscilla Presley, Harry Hamlin, Pia Toscano, Evan Ross, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his wife Peta Murgatroyd and Joy Corrigan.
