Other celebrity guests include Ted Danson, Steve Howey, Angela Kinsey, Alexandra Cousteau, Jeff Goldblum, Sam Trammell, Rachael Harris, Sarah Shahi, Angie Harmon, Emmanuelle Chirqui, Alexandra Cousteau, Bella Thorne, Kristin Bauer, Aimee Teegarden, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
This year’s celebration will be hosted at a private villa in Laguna Beach, California. Guests will enjoy cocktail reception and a sit-down dinner, as well as be able to enjoy gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and gorgeous villa gardens.
Ocean champions Michael and Tricia Berns, as well as South Coast Plaza, will be celebrated for their support and work in this important environmental endeavor. 7-year-old Ocean Hero Junior finalist Sam Harris will also be honored for his work toward saving sharks.
The event features an auction with items including a 2012 Fisker Karma electric sports car with Eco Trim, signed by Henrik Fisker, and a one week private charter to the Caribbean on the “The Hemisphere,” the world’s largest Catamaran.
