Oceana holds charity event and auction SeaChange Summer Party

Get ready to help Oceana protect our world’s oceans. Join the charity’s star-studded, fourth annual SeaChange Summer Party, scheduled for Oct. 1 in Orange County’s Laguna Beach, and join in the conservation efforts. Oceana, together with special guests Josh Brolin and Diane Lane, will be holding a special evening and auction to fund Oceana’s ongoing efforts to save our oceans and their marine life for future generations to enjoy.

Held at a charming private Laguna Beach villa overlooking the Southern California Rivera, guests can experience sumptuous gardens and majestic views of the Pacific Ocean. The affair will also draw attention to the issue of ocean acidification, which is triggered by increasing carbon dioxide levels and is harmful to the oceans’ coral reefs and the species they harbor. In previous years, the party and auction have raised more than $3 million for Oceana’s international science-based campaigns, as well as funds directed toward Orange County ocean conservation organizations.

At the Top Drawer Auction, you can bid on a variety of exclusive items, from a trip to a Bali resort and a diamond and pearl Mikimoto necklace to a shopping spree at Fashion Island and designer items from Chanel, Gucci and Versace. LadyLUX has picked our top three favorite items below, but more than 50 items will be offered for sale. Even if you live too far away to attend, you can still bid remotely by calling Pamela George at 949.295.5811.
