A party for a good cause brought out the collectors, philanthropists, and glittery celebrities at Christie’s last night for the Inaugural Oceana Ball, which raised approximately $1 million in proceeds via the live auction of fantasy lots curated by Oceana, the largest international organization dedicated solely to protecting the world’s oceans. the biggest bid — $110,000 — went for the opportunity to have lunch with President Clinton and Susan & David Rockefeller at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. All event proceeds directly benefit the protection and restoration of shark populations.
The evening kicked off with a star-studded blue carpet, where stunning couple Chris Hemsworth (in Calvin Klein) and Elsa Pataky, clad in a glittery frock by Naeem Khan stole the attention of photographers and guests alike. Not far behind them was Chris’ equally charming older brother, Luke Hemsworth with his wife, Samantha. Oceana Ambassador, Kate Walsh, attended in support of the inaugural event as well, wearing an appropriate ocean-blue Jenni Kayne skirt, effortlessly paired with an off-white embellished Isabel Marant top.
The Inaugural Oceana Ball initiative will continue raising funds online through April 17 at Charitybuzz.com/Oceana, with hundreds of once-in-a-lifetime lots spanning the worlds of entertainment, fashion, travel, art and more. The total funds accumulated through both the live and online efforts will be revealed on April 20.
