Actor Jamie Foxx had a great time at an event raising money for Down syndrome research, People reported. This cause is particularly close to his heart as his sister, DeOndra Dixon, has Down syndrome. Dixon herself was in attendance of the event -- the 10th annual BBBY Fashion Show for Global Down Syndrome Foundation -- and is an ambassador for the foundation.
Foxx reportedly played a wacky trick on Denver Broncos player Von Miller during the show. When items were being auctioned off to raise money for the foundation, Foxx spontaneously decided to auction off the suit that Miller was wearing! The two were able to raise $32,000 for the formal wear, and the event in its entirety rose a total of $2.4 million.
Colin Farrell was also spotted at the show. His son, James, has a rare condition called Angelman syndrome, which is similar to Down syndrome in the sense that it can also cause certain developmental delays. Jeremy Renner and Heather Graham were also there in support, making this a star-studded event.
Other notable attendees included Shia LaBeouf and Dakota Johnson. Both are starring in the 2019 film The Peanut Butter Falcon with fellow actor Zack Gottsagen, who has Down syndrome. The trio stepped on stage together and spoke at the show.
As for Foxx, who brought along his 9-year-old daughter Annalise, his sister is a massive inspiration to him. He and his sister did an interview together for Dateline earlier this year, where he spoke on Dixon putting things into perspective for him.
