Charlize Theron's Celeb Friends Support Her at Africa Outreach Project Fundraiser!

Charlize Theron hits the red carpet while attending her organization’s Africa Outreach Project Fundraiser on Tuesday (November 12) at the Africa Center in New York City.

The Oscar-winning actress was joined at the event by celeb friends like Amy Schumer, Drew Barrymore, and Awkwafina.

Charlize and Awkwafina are two stars you can expect to see throughout awards season. They are both frontrunners for the Best Actress award for their work in Bombshell and The Farewell, respectively.

The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) invests in African youth and their ability to keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS. Charlize created CTAOP in 2007 with the hope of making a difference in fighting HIV in her home country of South Africa. Although the geographic scope of CTAOP is sub-Saharan Africa, South Africa has remained the primary area of focus with the highest number of people living with HIV in the world.
