Olivia Holt turns 16 today, but celebrated on Friday at an awesome bash with guests including Debby Ryan, Jaden Smith, Kat McNamara and more!

 

The part was held at Greystone Manor in L.A. Olivia wore a gorgeous white dress inspired by Old Hollywood, which was also the theme of the party!

The party was sponsored by PlayMG and Carmex Moisture Plus.

Rather than asking for gifts, Olivia asked her party guests to donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!

"Even though I spend most of my time in Los Angeles now, my hometown is just a few miles away from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital," Olivia wrote on her personalized tribute page for St. Jude. "I grew up knowing about the hospital's mission to find cures and save children battling deadly diseases like cancer. But over the past couple years, I've had the opportunity to experience it first-hand through spending time with incredible patients at the hospital."

Olivia set a goal of raising $2500 on her birthday for the cause, and just a few hours into her birthday she's nearly reached her goal!

"For my birthday, the most special gift you could give would be a donation to help the kids of St. Jude," she said. "No amount is too small. For example, $8 will provide a doll that helps patients understand medical treatment and procedures, and $25 covers the costs of a No Mo Chemo Party."
