David Arquette hosted a private dinner for The Art of Elysium this week

David Arquette and Courteney Cox reunited at his place this week for a good cause: Arquette held a private, celeb-filled dinner for the Art of Elysium at his Beverly Hills pad.

A suit-clad Arquette welcomed guests for a meal and some education about the organization, which taps noted artists, actors and musicians to work with kids battling serious illness.

Topher Grace, Elijah Wood, Rachel Bilson, Ali Larter, Lukas Haas and Jamie King attended, witnessing a passionate speech from Arquette about the charity's mission. So passionate, a partygoer told the Ministry, that the separated couple high-fived after he spoke his piece.

Cox and Arquette split last October but remain friends in co-parenting their little gal, Coco. The do-gooding comes on the heels of Arquette lending some elbow grease to Habitat for Humanity, where the "Scream 4" star helped with home construction in Burbank.

The Elysium bash, which also attracted Michelle Trachtenberg, featured a three-course sit-down dinner and brut and rose Champagne from Beau Joie.
