Eva Longoria held a charity gala in Marbella, Spain, for her self-titled foundation last night (19.08.12).

The 37-year-old actress stunned partygoers by arriving at the Global Gift Gala event in a strapless violet dress with an hour glass design on The Front, and she took to her twitter account to reveal her delight at being on stage with Spanish national football team manager Vincente del Bosque and American physician Deepak Chopra.

She wrote: ''Very excited to be on stage with @DeepakChopra and Vincente del Bosque! Gracias a todos! Que exito! (sic)''

The 'Desperate Housewives' star has attended a number of gala charity events in Spain over the past week including one at Aqua Mist Club on Saturday evening (18.08.12), where she represented the Eva Longoria Foundation.

The brunette beauty sported a black Alberta Ferretti bandeau dress for the occasion and was joined by her friend Amaury Nolasco - who starred as Fernando Sucre in drama TV series 'Prison Break' - and singer-and-actor Terrence Howard, who performed at the event.

As well as the glitzy parties, Eva also took part in a walk-a-thon charity race to help raise money for her foundation, which aims to help developmentally-disabled children and women worldwide but particularly from the Latino community in the US.

Eva has worked with a number of charities throughout her career including The National Stroke Association, Clothes Off Our Back Foundation and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
