Marking the organization's 20th Anniversary, the zero-waste event brought together Hollywood's elite activists and eco-conscious celebrities to raise funds and awareness for Global Green USA's ongoing initiatives. The night began with arrivals on the signature "Green Carpet" where celebrities and VIPs checked out the all-new, 2014 Cadillac ELR plug-in electric vehicle and talked about various ways they "do green" in their daily lives.
Guests enjoyed a plant-based dinner catered by Akasha Restaurant, which included forbidden black rice pilaf with spring peas & greens and roasted king oyster mushrooms, finished with a chocolate-walnut-cashew cake sundae. Guests also participated in a high-end auction lead by Christie's auctioneer, Mariana Joseph, which included a J. Lohr Paso Robles getaway, a trip to Turtle Island Resort Fiji, an ultimate "Moby Experience" and more. Eco-conscious celebrity Michelle Branch even took the stage to model a ring for auction, helping encourage guests to bid and raise funds for the organization.
Following dinner and the auction, Moby promptly began his electric performance - his only scheduled show for the entire year. Moby performed with The Silver Lake Chorus, mixing his biggest hits with newer material, and even making several heart-felt remarks about the importance of environmental awareness.
Kellan Lutz reunited with former cast-mate Ashley Greene during the performance, and the Twilight buds were spotted laughing and celebrating with a large group of friends. Malin Akerman and Eliza Coupe danced to Moby's electric performance, while posing for pictures and chatting with guests at their table. The evening ended with a DJ set by The Crystal Method.
