An Evening with WildAid – 2017 Gala Highlights

Each year WildAid hosts a star-studded gala fundraiser to celebrate progress in protecting endangered species and marine habitats. We are proud to share the successes made possible by our generous supporters, and to showcase recent work by our portfolio of ambassadors.

WildAid’s 2017 gala was held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday, November 11, 2017. The event’s sponsors included the TOMS Animal Initiative, Guthy-Renker, Dunstan Wines and China Eastern Airlines. We were thrilled to honor WildAid ambassador Josh Duhamel with our Wildlife Champion Award for his exceptional dedication and service to our mission.
