"Devious Maids" executive producer Eva Longoria hosted her first Global Gift Gala at the Supperclub at Jumeriah Zabeel Saray on the Palm in Dubai, U.A.E, to help raise funds for women's and children's charities. The former "Desperate Housewives" star, who is the honorary chair of the Global Gift Foundation, partenered with Noor Dubai Foundation, which aims to provide eyesight care for underprivileged women and children. 

Longoria was joined by rapper 50 Cent, who he auctioned off a pair of autographed wireless headphones for $15,000. "I wasn’t really expecting to come so I'm not that dressed up," said the rapper.

She also presented fellow Latino superstar Ricky Martin with a Global Gift Humanitarian Award for his work fighting children's sexual trafficking. "It's a privilege to honor my dear friend," she said, introducing Martin. "He has been someone I've admired and respected for years for his endless commitment on ending the exploitation of children," said Longoria.
