Environmentally minded celebrities like Rosario Dawson, Orlando Bloom and Adrian Grenier will stroll the green carpet (natch) in front of the Avalon Hollywood tonight to support the 9th annual pre-Oscar party for Global Green, the American affiliate of Green Cross International.
According to the event press release, general admission tickets to the bash are going for a very reasonable $50 (VIP packages start at $1000), and will be available at the door. Proceeds from the event are dedicated for Global Green’s national Green Schools initiative, as well as a campaign around the Rio Earth Summit this June, which they would very much like for President Obama to attend.
The much-discussed Chevy Volt will serve as the event’s automotive sponsor, with Chevy rolling out a “sneak preview” of the 2012 Volt that qualifies for the both the carpool lane sticker and the new $1500 CA Clean Vehicle Rebate.
On the more extreme end of green transportation, immensely cool 100% electric motorcycle the Xenon by Evolve will be auctioned off for Global Green’s causes. Reminiscent of the light cycles from the movie "Tron: Legacy," these futuristic bikes should really come with a Daft Punk helmet.
The evening will be powered by the music of headliner Shelia E (who always sets a party off right) and DJs Michael Smith and KCRW-FM radio host Garth Trinidad.
