They are parents to two teenage children, so naturally they care about the future.

And Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber displayed their charitable side on Tuesday when they attended the Who Cares About The Next Generation benefit in Pacific Palisades, CA.

The evening was created to help fund UCLA’s programs for treating autism and cancer in young adults.

Cindy layered a solid, black top under a matching blazer along with a skinny patterned scarf tied around her neck.

The brunette stunner added a pair of skinny trousers and dark-coloured ankle boots, before accessorizing with a belt, watch, necklace and wrap scarf.

The 50-year-old kept close to her husband of 18-years, who stylishly dressed in a dark button-up, bomber jacket and denim trousers.

But Cindy and hubby Rande weren’t the only big-named stars at the event.

Dustin Hoffman attended with son Jake, while David Spade and David Foster also stepped out.
