Sure summertime beckons many summer affairs, not involving the pool boy, but rather elegant minglings of society and style celebrating the glorious summer sun. And while you’ve probably already put away your LBD’s (for their immediate return in fall, of course) in exchange for white and bright beach-y frocks in anticipation of the people and parties surrounding the Hamptons, sailboats, poolside galas, and chic-attire barbecues (which only a social order akin to your elite tastes could pull off), cool your Gucci’s, opt for a nature-al bauble, and save the date for a green cause, Global Green USA’s 14th Annual Millennium Awards on Saturday, June 12.
Global Green USA will honor outstanding environmental leaders at its 14th Annual Millennium Awards at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. Celebrity guests and leaders from the Hollywood, business, and environmental communities will gather to raise funds to support the organization’s initiatives to rebuild a green New Orleans; to create green affordable housing and green schools in Los Angeles, throughout California and nationally; and to continue to advocate for innovative and effective policy initiatives to combat climate change.
EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson will deliver the keynote address, while honorees will include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the University of California System, and the W Hollywood Hotel & Residences, all acknowledged for their lives and careers exemplifying Global Green USA’s mission of “fostering a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure world.” This year’s esteemed Global Green’s Millennium Awards are chaired by Bob Bucklin, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jim Gianopulos, Tom Roell, Tom Rothman, Diane Meyer Simon and co-chaired by Sebastian Copeland, Salma Hayek, Zem Joaquin, Lyn & Norman Lear, Pat Mitchell & Scott Seydel, Ann & Jerry Moss, and Lynda & Stuart Resnick.
Global Green USA, the national leader in advocating for smart solutions to climate change, is benefitting humanity by saving energy, reducing CO2 emissions, improving health, creating green jobs, and securing a more sustainable future, so amongst time spent honing your nautical skills, anchor yourself at an event honoring some naturals.
