SAN ANTONIO -- Local superstar Eva Longoria held a star-studded charity event to benefit young adults with special needs.

The red carpet was unveiled for the eighth annual Celebrity Casino Night on Saturday.

The event brought together San Antonio celebrities like local Spurs star Sean Elliott and actor Jesse Borrego to raise money for Eva's Heroes, a charity founded by the Texas star to help young men and women with special needs.

"My oldest sister is mentally disabled," said Longoria. "We started Eva's Heroes just as an after-school program to help people like my sister."

Longoria said proceeds from the event go straight to charity, allowing it to provide after-school programs, monthly activities, and summer enrichment programs to 1,500 young adults with special needs every year.

Those in attendance say the efforts have inspired them to do more for their local communities.

"If we don't do it, who's going to do it?" said Borrego. "We take her lead, we take her example and we give back whenever we can," he said.
