At their annual dinner event on June 25th, the Hollywood-Los Angeles Beautification Team will honor Ed. Begley Jr. and Amy Smart for their work promoting the green lifestyle.
The HBT was created in 1992 by members of the Hollywood and Los Angeles community to assist their community in improving school campuses, neighborhoods and business districs. The organization also provides vocational training to at-risk youth, creates educational workshops and each year plants 2,000 trees, abates over two million square feet of graffiti, and removes more than 30 tons of trash from the city streets.
I think just about everyone is familiar with Begley, and surely Ecorazzi has told you all you could possibly want to know about his green godliness, but Smart is a relatively new face in the eco world and it’s nice to see her getting the props she deserves. In case you didn’t know, Amy Smart is a long-time spokesperson for the non-profit group Heal The Bay, an organization devoted to cleaning up the Santa Monica Bay. Rock on Amy!
The good news for you is that the event is open to the public!! The evening will take place at the Universal Studios Globe Theater, with festivities starting promptly at 6pm. Single tickets are $150 and sponsorships are also available. So grab your recycled green dress and those vegan dress shoes and visit hbteam.org to get your tickets AND your green on.
