Global Green Urges Hollywood to Commit to the Fight Against Climate Change at 15th Annual Pre-Oscar Gala

Global Green, a national environmental organization headquartered in Southern California, hosted its 15th annual Pre-Oscar Gala presented by EARTHx. The green event of Oscar Week, gathered celebrities, eco-luminaries, and green businesses to celebrate and champion climate heroes on February 28, in the heart of Hollywood at NeueHouse, a venue that is both historic and green. VIP and celebrity attendees arrived at the green carpet in clean hydrogen electric fuel cell vehicles in partnership with environmental nonprofit Energy Independence Now. The event raised critical funds for Global Green’s climate disaster rebuilding initiatives as well as their efforts to help build greener affordable housing for the homeless. 2017 has seen some of the worst climate-related disasters in modern times. California has experienced one of its worst fire and mudslide seasons, and some of the most destructive hurricanes to strike the U.S. caused devastating floods and power outages in Houston and Puerto Rico. The night was enhanced with a featured performance by 12 time grammy nominated Ledisi and by Lauren Ruth Ward. Guests were treated to a performance by the Foshay during the cocktail reception. Ed O’Neil, Elisabeth Röhm, Lea Thompson, Buzz Aldrin, Garcelle Beauvais, Ashley Tisdale, Hannah Zeile, Sharon Lawrence, John Salley, and Jane Seymour were also in attendance.
