Last Friday, more than 350 guests attended Oceana‚Äôs third annual SeaChange Summer Party in Laguna Beach, California, which raised over 1 million dollars for ocean conservation.
Jeff Bridges and Pierce Brosnan were the special guests of the evening, and other celebs in attendance included Morgan Freeman, Ted Danson, Sam Waterston, Diane Lane, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Eric Balfour and Kristin Bauer.
Bridges, who recently scored an Oscar for his role as country singer ‚ÄúBad Blake‚ÄĚ in ‚ÄúCrazy Heart,‚ÄĚ gave a surprise performance. Afterwards he charmed the ‚ÄúLebowski‚ÄĚ fans in the audience by quipping, ‚ÄúOceana abides.‚ÄĚ
All in all, a fantastic night for ocean conservation.
