GLOBAL GREEN USA & MOBY KICK OFF OSCAR WEEK
Global Green USA’s 11th Annual Pre-Oscar® Party to feature
a live performance by Moby and DJ Set by The Crystal Method
Global Green USA announced today that the award-winning musician and environmentalist Moby will take the stage as headliner at Global Green USA’s 11th Annual Pre-Oscar® Party, and electronic music duo The Crystal Method will be spinning all night at one of Oscar Week’s biggest events.
Kicking off the biggest week in entertainment, Global Green USA will be hosting its can’t-miss, pre-Oscar bash on Wednesday, February 26th at the Avalon Hollywood. Marking the organization’s 20th Anniversary, the zero-waste party will bring together Hollywood’s elite activists and eco-conscious celebrities to enjoy a night of plant-based dining by Akasha Restaurant, rare performances and an exclusive auction, all to raise funds and awareness for Global Green USA’s ongoing initiatives.
“We are thrilled to be part of Oscar Week yet again, delivering what will be the hottest ticket among green-minded A-listers,” said Mary Luevano, Global Green USA’s Interim Executive Director. “By bringing Moby and The Crystal Method to our party, we continue to demonstrate Global Green’s ability to connect eco-conscious entertainers, influencers and brands and act as a catalyst for change.”
Added Moby: “After attending multiple Global Green events over the years and supporting them in their mission, it’s really nice to be able to play their legendary pre-Oscar party.”
Global Green USA is dedicated to helping the people, places, and the planet in need through catalytic projects, transformative policy, and cutting-edge research. Global Green USA’s signature programs include greening affordable housing, schools, neighborhoods, and cities as well as rebuilding communities — such as New Orleans and areas of New York and New Jersey — that have suffered from the impacts of climate change, sea level rise, and environmental degradation. Global Green USA is the U.S. affiliate of Green Cross International, which was founded by President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1993 to foster a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future.
To achieve Global Green’s goal of making this a zero-waste event, the organization’s own Coalition for Resource Recovery program, in collaboration with CoRR member Athens Services and the staff of the Avalon Hollywood, will work to ensure that at least 90 percent of all refuse, including food scraps and packaging, is diverted from landfill through three key measures: reusing, recycling, and composting.
The event also will also feature the all-new, 2014 Cadillac ELR plug-in electric vehicle, which will be on display in the Cadillac ELR Lounge and on the green carpet. Guests will be served organic 360 Vodka cocktails, sustainably grown wine from J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, a Certified California Sustainable Vineyard & Winery, and an organic, plant-based dinner by Akasha Restaurant before the live performance. Event Eleven’s Tony Schubert will serve as executive show producer.
General admission and VIP tickets for Wednesday’s event are now on-sale at www.globalgreen.org. For event updates, follow @globalgreen and use the hashtag #GreenPreOscar.
