The big Ellen DeGeneres announcement has American Idol fans abuzz well in advance of the show's premiere. If you're starting to get excited you may want to check out an upcoming benefit to help children who are victims of sexual abuse which American Idol Jordin Sparks hosts. Sounds like a real party too: "This Red Carpet evening begins with a special cocktail reception with Jordin Sparks and other celebrities, followed by a silent auction, paddle raisers and raffle."

Yup, Jordin Sparks and paddle raisers.

Sparks, a Glendale native, will join 3 TV's Tara Hitchcock, to raise funds for the Tonya Allen Foundation, which helps children, and Sparks Charities. Tickets are available here.

The event is Saturday, October 24,at 6 p.m. at Allen's Bistro, 1301 E. Broadway in Phoenix.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
