The annual event is inspired by Lauren’s mother, who was diagnosed with the mentally degenerative disease in her early 50s.

At the fundraiser, guests – including the winner of Seth’s prom contest – were privy to performances by comedian Sarah Silverman, actor and musician Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and “Poison” trio Bel Biv DeVoe.

Stars like Judd Apatow, Rob Lowe, Weird Al Yankovic and Maria Shriver flocked to the charitable event in support of the Neighbours star and his wife.

A final tally has the event raising $900,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association, a cause that brought Seth before the Senate Appropriations Committee in Washington in February.

“I came here today for a few reasons,” said the 32-year-old funnyman. “One, I’m a huge House of Cards fan. Just marathoned the whole thing. Had to be here. Two is to say people need more help.”
