At least it was for a good cause!
On Friday night, Jennifer Garner made her first public appearance since her well-covered split from Ben Affleck over the summer, and she did it by joining a whole bunch of big-time celebs!

Garner was part of the Think It Up telecast in El Lay on Friday, a show trying to raise money and awareness for improving education in California, and Garner was joined by many other celebs at the wonderful event.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Justin Bieber, Kacey Musgraves and many more all joined Garner on stage at various points throughout the night — including the last two performing for the event — and a good time looks like it was had by all!
Garner, pictured above with Bieber, was all smiles at the event, though of course she was not wearing her wedding ring. Considering all that she's been through the last several months, at least she was happy on Friday night!
