She has always had a heart for helping others, and Zooey Deschanel was spotted at the Alliance for Children’s Rights dinner in Beverly Hills last night (March 1).

The “New Girl” starlet was all smiles as she posed for the shutterbugs as the Beverly Hilton Hotel in a lacy black dress with black stockings and black heels.

Zooey was in the house to help raise awareness and funds for the Alliance For Children’s Rights, a cause she strongly supports.

Per the organization’s website, “The Alliance for Children's Rights protects the rights of impoverished and abused children and youth so that they have safe, stable homes, health care and the education they need to thrive. Since our founding in 1992, we have provided free legal services and advocacy to over 100,000 children and youth in Los Angeles County. For many of our clients, The Alliance is the only connection to a safer, brighter future.”
