Emmy-winner, supermodel, actress and now philanthropist, Sofia Vergara launched "Meatballs 4 Ninos" at Buca di Beppo to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on Wednesday night (January 22).

Beautiful in a black leather dress, the 41-year-old posed amongst an entire feast of spaghetti and delicious meatballs, flashing her pearly whites in against the backdrop of an idyllic restaurant.

Buca di Beppo will reportedly donate $1 to St. Jude for every meatball appetizer, entrée, and side dish served in the restaurant, also applying when ordering Buca-to-Go.

Robert Earl, of Planet Hollywood International, owning Buca di Beppo, stated that, "We’re honored that Sofia is partnering with Buca to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital."

Earl continued, saying, "St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does everything possible to save the lives of children fighting cancer, and they freely share their research breakthroughs with other doctors around the world, which helps save kids in communities everywhere. While our customers are enjoying some of our world-famous meatballs, they will also be giving hope to the patients at St. Jude and children with cancer in communities across America."
