The Natural Resources Defense Council’s Southern California office is celebrating its 20th anniversary next week — and the guest list features some heavy A-list talent coming out to offer congratulations.
Hosted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and taking place at the Beverly Wilshire on April 25th, the event will be attended by both Robert Redford and Leonardo DiCaprio; among other celebrities, activists, and supporters. Maroon 5 will supply the live music and Rosanna Arquette will DJ the after-party. A short film featuring DiCaprio and Redford that outlines the accomplishments of NRDC’s Southern California office will also be shown.
“You can be tough doing bad things, and tough doing good things. NRDC, in my opinion, is tough doing good things,” Redford said in a statement. DiCaprio, also a trustee, called NRDC “probably the most effective environmental organization in the world. It is willing to take on major corporations and the government itself to hold them accountable for the environmental policy that’s out there,” he said in a statement.
