On December 7th, The Captain Planet Foundation presented its annual Benefit Gala, one of the Southeast’s largest eco-benefits, at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta. The charitable evening recognized extraordinary environmental change-makers, Adrian Grenier and Rev Dr. Gerald Durley, along with five Young Ocean Heroes, and raised over $500,000 to support the Foundation’s programs and mission. Guests mingled with celebrities and civic leaders, enjoyed live musical entertainment, bid on stellar live and silent auction items featuring one-of-a-kind trips and eco-luxury experiences, and enjoyed a cocktail reception and three-course dinner. “Green carpet” arrivals included Ted Turner, Chris Tucker, Adrian Grenier, and Rev Dr. Gerald Durley.
