Ric O’Barry was in Daytona  yesterday with Leilani Munter, who drove a ‘The Cove’-themed car to raise awareness for the dolphins in Taiji. Next weekend, O’Barry will be at a special event in Hollywood where he will be honored by celebs for his activism.

On March 3rd, ‘A Night for the Dolphins‘ will honor O’Barry and raise funds for his Dolphin Project at a private home in Hollywood. The red carpet event produced by Deborah Bassett and hosted by James Costa will feature a cocktail reception, champagne toast and vegan hors d’oeuvres. DJ Kolade and singer Mia Maestro will be providing entertainment.

Celebrity supporters will also be on hand as hosts to honor the dolphin trainer-turned activist. The host committee includes Ed Begley, Jr., Carrie Ann Inaba, Isabel Lucas, Jillian Michaels, Leilani Munter, Wilmer Valderrama, and more.

According to recent information from Bassett, Jillian Michaels will also be auctioning off a private session with her at the event; as well as some other great items donated by people like Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, and Kelly Slater. Emmy Rossum is also confirmed, in addition to cast from “Shameless”, the “Twilight” series.

A limited number of tickets are available from Brown Paper Tickets (the event is 21 and over).
