Vanessa Hudgens turned 25 this Saturday (Dec. 14) and celebrated with a Hollywood–themed party. The star–studded event was held at No Vacancy in Hollywood and boasted a three–tiered cake and a tightrope walker.

However, the lavish bash wasn't the highlight of the "Spring Breakers" star's weekend.

The Filipino–American actress also received a $100,000 donation from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, on behalf of UNICEF Philippines. Hudgens has previously donated to the cause and was thrilled to accept the contribution.

"It means so, so much to me. I mean it really is an honor," she gushed. "I want to try to help as much as I can because it so close to home for me being Filipino. My mom's from the Philippines. I am so grateful."

The donation will fund recovery programs for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
