As always, GBK will blend this award show celebration and charity fundraising with the help of Presenting Sponsor NEW Tidy Cats® LightWeight 24/7 Performance®. Tidy Cats® LightWeight 24/7 Performance ® is a revolutionary new product that solves a pet peeve cat owners have been dealing with for a long time: heavy cat litter. This new product offers the strength and performance you expect from traditional scooping cat litter, but at half the weight; making it easy to carry, pour and store – as each jug is at least 50 percent lighter than traditional scooping litters. For every celebrity guest who “tosses” the Tidy Cats LightWeight 24/7 Performance litter during the two-day event, Tidy Cats will donate $100 to spcaLA, up to a maximum donation of $10,000.
Other honored non-profit organizations participating in the event include: The Creative Coalition, the premiere nonprofit, nonpartisan social and public advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community. Founded in 1989 by prominent members of the creative community, The Creative Coalition is dedicated to educating, mobilizing, and activating its members on issues of public importance, primarily public education, the First Amendment, and arts advocacy.
Lambda Legal’s mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy advocacy and our work is an integral part of the continuing struggle for civil rights in America. In support of Lambda Legal, fashion-forward, cause-driven hats will be donated by Gratitude Couture. Gratitude Couture is a business focused on supporting non-profit organizations intent on eradicating hate and bullying. Twenty percent of proceeds from sales will be donated to various handpicked charities they work with.
