Hugh Hefner and Pamela Anderson were back together at the mansion on Sunday night, but it had nothing to do with Playboy. They were there to celebrate the Hef's humanitarian efforts.

Angelwish, an organization that grants wishes to kids living with chronic illnesses throughout the world, named Hefner the "Humanitarian of the Year," after the Grammys, for his involvement with the organization, according to a statement released by the charity.

"Sean Diddy Combs is hosting a post Grammy party at the Mansion tonight the [sic] includes Pam Anderson honoring me with a Humanitarian Award," Hefner posted to his Twitter account.

Anderson, PETA spokeswoman and former Playboy model, presented the award at the “Fame at the Mansion” event, which also doubled as a fundraiser, Ecorazzi.com reports.

"We are especially excited that we will get to honor Mr. Hefner with our 'Humanitarian of the Year' award for all his charitable efforts over the years and for allowing us to include him in this celebration," said founder Shimmy Mehta.
