Mariska Hargitay raised more than $2 million for sexual abuse victims with a star-studded gala on Tuesday.
Alec Baldwin, Maria Bello, Hugh Jackman and Hilary Swank were among the stars who showed up to support Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation, which she founded in 2004 to help empower survivors of violence and abuse.

The event at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City featured performances by rocker Patti Smith and Counting Crows star Adam Duritz, as well as a speech from Courtney Love.
