The event featured musical performances by YDE and NBA legend Baron Davis (as his DJ alter ego Bart Oatmeal), featured experiential live auction items and shone the spotlight squarely on sustainable entertainment, cars, cocktails and a glimpse into a more environmentally-friendly future. Planet-friendly gift bags (containing surprises such as ManukaGuard’s all-natural Medical Grade Manuka Honey Nasal Spray and samples of sustainable Noble Oak Double Oak Whiskey) were provided to guests, who were also treated to sustainable foods and drinks.

Sponsored by Toyota and Noble Oak Double Oak Whiskey, the Green Pre-Oscar Gala event benefitted the DriveH2 zero emissions movement and was designed to bring an unforgettable night of entertainment, cars, celebrity chef-procured cuisine, sustainable cocktails, a lively fundraising auction, and a glimpse into a more sustainable future.

Also receiving the spotlight on the evening was DriveH2, the public service initiative by nonprofit environmental EIN and its message of a hydrogen-powered future. Working with EIN, Toyota (one of the event’s sponsors and makers of the Mirai, a groundbreaking hydrogen fuel cell powered car), has already made vehicle donations to non-profit organizations such as the American Red Cross, Petersen Automotive Museum (for education programs), Social Justice Learning Institute, ThinkWatts LA, Via Care and After-School All-Stars.

“It’s exciting to see high-profile personalities and influencers from film, television, sports and music working to educate themselves about viable, planet-friendly innovations and solutions to the gas and emissions crises and step forward and use their platforms to share what they’ve learned with their audiences,” said Brian Goldstein, EIN’s Executive Director. “If we are to effectively meet emission reduction goals, governmental and private investments in H2 are critical and it was gratifying to see so many influencers here to explore the solutions with us tonight.”
