Charity: Water Hosts A Star-Studded NYC Gala
Ok, first I just want to get this out of the way: I DO NOT WORK FOR ADRIAN GRENIER!! I know that lately Ecorazzi has seemed more like an Adrian Grenier fan site then an eco-celebrity blog, but the dude keeps doing good deeds. Last night, Charity: Water, an organization that works to provide clean, safe drinking water to countries in need, hosted a huge gala in NYC. And who do you think were the celebrity hosts? None other than Jessica Stam and yes…Adrian Grenier.
The event was held at The Metropolitan Pavilion and featured live performances by Cat Power and Dirty Delta Blues. Also included, was an auction with products supplied by Prada, Kenneth Cole, Diesel, Banana Republic, and many more. Oh yeah, and the cocktails…courtesy of Grey Goose Vodka–thank you very much. Charity: Water wants you to know that “water and lack of basic sanitation causes 80% of all sickness and disease, and kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.” And of course, all donations from this fancy schmancy party went directly to fund freshwater wells in developing nations. The event also featured an exhibit created by the organization’s founder, Scott Harrison along with Metropolitan Events & Production. The exhibit included photographs, video instillations, interactive displays, and soundscapes.
So Adrian, if your reading this, I really appreciate all this green stuff you’ve doing lately, but people are gonna start spreading rumors, man. Can’t you just drive an SUV, get lots of plastic surgery and flash the camera your naughties like all the other celebrities do…JEEZ!!! Check out our photos below from the event.
