Lacey Chabert and Candace Cameron Bure plan to use their star power for a worthy philanthropic endeavor. The two committed Christians are teaming up with fellow Hallmark stars for what's being billed as a Christmas in July celebrity virtual game night.


Put on by an outfit called Christmas is Not Cancelled, which funds non-profits, the event is a Family-Feud-themed affair and will feature "The Darlings vs. The Hunks," as the promotional material puts it. Cameron Bure and Chabert will be joined on Team Darling by Jen Lilley and Debbie Matenopolis and they will be taking on Team Hunk: Trevor Donovan, Cameron Matheson, Ryan Paevey and Andrew Walker.


Chabert calls it a "great cause" in a social media post and Cameron Bure tells her 5 million Instagram followers in a missive "you're all invited" to join the fun. The aim is to raise enough money to provide an assortment of school supplies for 2,021 children in foster care. It costs $49.00 to participate - though you can get a $10 discount via the aforementioned social media posts - and the event will take place via Zoom; $25,000 in prizes will also be given out, including a Christmas tree, cash and vacations.


It takes place Monday, July 26th at 8:00 PM EDT (GMT -4) and this link to the Christmas is Not Cancelled website has all the registration information.
