New York and Washington powerhouses wielded their considerable clout for a great cause on Saturday at Tudor Place. It was the second annual BabyLove DC carnival held on the lush grounds of Georgetown’s Tudor Place.

BabyLove was founded by actress Ali Wentworth, who is married to Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos. The organization helps Washington’s neediest families by collecting and donating baby gear and clothing. BabyLove makes it easy to donate items by providing collection sites throughout the year.
 
The popular carnival featured local vendors selling jewelry, clothing, and books. Children also romped around the grounds playing games, getting their faces painted, and listening to stories read by presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney.  And, of course, there were plenty of Sprinkles cupcakes on hand.
 
Carney and his wife,  ABC’s Claire Shipman, co-hosted the event with Stephanopoulos and Wentworth. And they brought along some ABC News star power, including White House correspondent Jake Tapper.
