This evening is more than just drinking expensive champagne and rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, it is a chance to honor those who devote so much time to the cause as well as educate others to the challenges ahead. Honorees this year are being celebrated for their extraordinary passion and dedication to preserving our planet.  Legendary Barbra Streisand has been a leader in environmental activism helping to clean up the planet’s air and water. She continues to push action on what she calls “the planetary crisis” of climate change through her foundation and public advocacy.

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen began protecting rainforests from her hometown in Brazil and even traveled to the Amazon with a National Geographic film crew focused on climate change. Since then, she’s branched out to numerous other parts of the world through the United Nations and other organizations, projecting her optimistic vision of conservation and a healthy planet.
