BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Hollywood stars will auction red carpet fashions to raise funds for victims of the South Asia tsunami, says the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

"Malcolm in the Middle" star Jane Kaczmarek and her husband, "The West Wing" star Bradley Whitford, will emcee a reception in Hollywood on Jan. 19, to show clothing and accessories that will be offered as part of the upcoming "Clothes Off Our Back" Golden Globe auction.

The auction is scheduled to run from Jan. 17 through 30 at clothesoffourback.org, with proceeds benefiting the United Nations International Children's Fund's Tsunami Relief Fund.

The event is being sponsored by the HFPA and In Style magazine.

"With a disaster of this magnitude that has affected so many children, everyone wants to help," said Kaczmarek, co-founder and president of Clothes Off Our Back. "The Hollywood community has a great opportunity with the upcoming Golden Globes. We are calling on all current and past Golden Globe nominees and winners to donate their clothing and accessories from the red carpet to help raise money for UNICEF to care for the children who have survived this disaster."

The HFPA has already donated $250,000 to the tsunami relief effort.
