Eva Mendes was the guest of honor at The Art of Elysium 2nd Annual Black Tie charity gala last night.

The event, called Heaven, was a night of fashion, music, art, design, as well as a worthwhile children's charity. The 34 year-old actress was given the Spirit of Elysium Award for her efforts to bring art to hospitalized kids.

"What they do for us and how they help us, it's really interesting to see that they enrich our lives," Mendes told ET. "They're the strong ones, they make us stronger. It's such a beautiful exchange of spirit through the arts, it's just lovely."
