Young Hollywood came together once again for theÂ 7th Annual Thirst Project GalaÂ at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday, June 13, 2016.
Thirst Project supporters gathered for a night to not only honorÂ Ansel ElgortÂ andÂ CatherineÂ HardwickeÂ (director and producer), but also to honor those who have made a difference in fighting the world water crisis.
The Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization that travels across the United States speaking at schools to educate students about the global water crisis to challenge them to fundraise to build wells. All the money donated directly goes to the funding freshwater wells on the ground. In 6 years, the Thirst Project has gotten help from over 300,000 students across the United States, who have raised $8 million and used to give 260,00 people in 12 countries safe, clean water. Several people are not aware of how serious the water crisis is around the world, while here in the United States we can easily access water by turning on a faucet. Almost 1 billion people on the planet do not have access to safe, clean water.
Tons of celebrities such asÂ Allie Gonino, Amy Paffrath, Andrea Russett, Ashley Rickards, Cameron Boyce, Catherine Hardwicke, Charisma Carpenter, Connor Franta, Dove Cameron, Drake Bell, Drew Seeley, Emeraude Toubia, Grace Helbig, Hal Sparks,Â Isaiah Mustafa, Jake Paul, Jillian Rose Reed, Karan Brar, Katherine McNamara, Kelli Berglund, Kirsten Vangsness, Kristen Stewart, Lance Bass, Michael Welch, Molly Tarlov, Ronni Hawk, Taryn Southern, Taylor Spreitler, and Wesam Keesh were in attendance to support founderÂ Seth MaxwellÂ and his incredible cause.
