Miranda Cosgrove Celebrates Her Birthday at St. Jude Charity Event
Miranda Cosgrove and the cast of 'iCarly' and 'Victorious' spent their Sunday at a special charity event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, but it was the now 18-year-old star who received the biggest surprise.
Although Miranda was there to support the 'Stars For The Kids' program, the children honored the pop singer with a giant cake for her 18th birthday. Still, the caring actress remained focused on the kids.
"The best part of my visit today at St. Jude has been seeing the smiles on the kids' faces as they talk about the shows and their favorite episodes," she said. "They are so adorable and it makes me happy to be here."
Miranda helped to raise more than $100,000 for St. Jude, which focuses on finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, so fundraising events like these are really important to the organization.
