Christopher Bently chaired the eighth annual Gorgeous & Green Gala, a benefit for Global Green USA, at his own Bently Reserve on December 11, 2012. Celebrity hosts Michelle Branch, Cody Horn, Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Ed O’Neill and Dan Vickrey joined over 200 supporters and helped raise some $230,000 for post-Hurricane Sandy eco-friendly rebuilding projects.
Chefs Michael Mina, Joseph Humphrey, and Bill Corbett prepared an organic gourmet dinner, which was served in the historic banking hall. After dinner, supporters watched an eco-fashion show from Amour Vert, Cari Borja, Mina + Olya, PACT, Prophetik, Oliver Tolentino and Vintage a la Mode. Bay Area based companies Google, PwC and DLR Group, received Eco-Accolade Awards for their commitments to sustainability.
