Mario Lopez and girlfriend Courtney Mazza are celebrating their daughter Gia Francesca’s first birthday by asking friends, family and fans to give back.  Gia’s first birthday is actually on September 11th.

Lopez created a birthday registry on MyRegistry.com, letting friends and family know what to purchase for the toddler’s big day.  Additionally, Lopez is asking friends, family as well as the public to make contributions to the Community Youth Athletic Center of Chula Vista, which benefits troubled youth in and around his hometown of San Diego, California.  The former ‘Save by the Bell’ star and current guest host of ‘Extra’ and MTV’s ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ is also going to celebrate Gia’s 1st birthday by debuting a new children’s book titled ‘Mario and Baby Gia’.

“Gia and I are so thankful to be able to work with MyRegistry.com to donate to the Community Youth Center of Chula Vista – a wonderful organization that deserves tremendous support,” said Mario Lopez. “We are most excited to celebrate her birthday in this extra special way.”
