Gabrielle Reece hosts “The Awakening Sea” Book Launch Party Presented by Crosscreek Entertainment

Crosscreek Entertainment presented the launch of The Awakening Sea, a thrilling science adventure book series with a strong ocean conservation message, by coming-of-age author Rowena Patterson on Thursday, July 27. Held at a private residence in Malibu and hosted by Gabrielle Reece, the evening featured specialty Beach Whiskey Co. cocktails and light bites. Gabrielle Reece attended the sunset event with her two beautiful daughters, Reece and Brody Hamilton. The event’s host and her professional big-wave surfer husband, Laird Hamilton, are longtime Malibu residents and environmental activists. Though the evening was centered on bringing attention to a serious global issue, there was celebration to be had for The Awakening Sea series debut that aims to spark a new generation of ocean supporters. Guests including Annalynne McCord, Briana Evigan, Cassie Scerbo enjoyed the evening with pals and snapped pictures in the photobooth with a few stuffed sea animal friends. Heartfelt speeches from Patterson and Sea Shepherd Conservation Chief Operating Officer David Hance were delivered to the tune of soft waves crashing upon the beach on the mid-summer evening. For every book sale, $1 will be donated to benefit the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a non-profit marine preservation organization.
