Last week, several celebrity tweens and adults gathered to help Leeza Gibbons plant over 100 trees at TreePeople’s headquarters in Coldwater Canyon Park. The event was the fulfillment of a promise by Gibbons to offset the carbon footprint of guests at her annual Oscar dinner and viewing party “A Night to Make a Difference.”

Celebrity guests included Sarah Clarke (Twilight, Trust Me), Claudia Jordan (The Apprentice), Olesya Rulin (High School Musical 1,2,3), Jennifer Stone (Wizards of Waverly Place), Kellie Martin (Mystery Woman), Marisa Ramirez (The Mentalist), Kaycee Stroh (High School Musical 1,2,3), Rachelle Carson (Living With Ed), Justin Martin (High School Musical 3), Alani ‘La La’ Vazquez (VH-1’s Charm School), Kris Black (The House That Jack Built) and Bruce Reynolds (BBC Breakfast).

“We’re grateful for the commitment to our local ecosystem shown by the tree planters today,” said Jim Hardie, TreePeople Director of Park Operations. “These celebrities are setting an example for their fans that ‘green’ is more than a slogan, and getting your hands dirty can be fun.”
