Matt Peterson, president of Global Green, kicked off the evening by highlighting some of the past year’s initiatives, including Habitat for Humanity’s LEED for Neighborhood Development Edes Avenue Project in Oakland, CA; Global Green’s post-Katrina rebuilding efforts in New Orleans; and its work along the Gulf Coast.

The excitement on the floor was palpable as Global Green presented cutting-edge community enterprises, such as the 77,173-square-foot, LEED-certified educational campus of the Animo Ralph Bunche & Jefferson Charter Schools, which are supported by fundraisers such as Gorgeous & Green.

Matt Peterson touted One Tree Hill co-stars Austin Nicols and Sophia Bush’s compilation album, Gasoline Rainbows, initiated by music artist Amy Kuney in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the Gulf Coast oil spill and cleanup. We also raised glasses of organic Korbel California champagne to toast celebrity guest—and self-proclaimed Global Green “fluffer”—Rhona Mitra, who has helped spur awareness about the state of affairs in the Gulf Coast.
