Some 4,248 fans came, although Garner and Affleck were not in attendance. Fans named Jennifer and those who donated a gift were admitted free.

The promotion benefited the baby pantry for Starting Points (search), a nonprofit group serving children and the families of children under age 8.

Among the 410 donations were a car seat, diapers and baby food, Power account executive Matt Thompson said.

Garner, 33, star of the TV series "Alias," and actor Ben Affleck, 32, were not at the game. The couple wed last month.
