Athletes and stars gathered at Hyde Bellagio on Saturday night for the launch of “Be In The Know About Bullying,” a non-profit organization that has partnered with numerous celebrities and sports stars to advocate the fight against bullying.

Guests included “Shahs of Sunset” stars Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi and Mercedes “MJ” Javid, former NFL players Sean James, Brendon Ayanbadejo and Jonas Jennings, NFL free agent Bernard Berrian and former Olympians Garrett Klugh and Katura Horton-Perinchief among others.

After posing for photos on the red carpet, guests headed inside where they mingled over gourmet appetizers and cocktails handcrafted by Hyde’s expert mixologists.

Later in the evening guests gathered to watch an inspirational anti-bullying video and hear words from “Be In The Know About Bullying” founder Sean James. James spoke about the goal of the anti-bullying program, which emphasizes that students can make a meaningful impact and prevent bullying in their schools through leadership, education and the use of mentors.

The event concluded with James awarding Brendon Ayanbadejo with the organization’s first “Gamer Changer” award, for helping to change the game of bullying.
