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.

Just in time for World Oceans Day, this month Malibu Magazine released its Blue Issue, which showcases high-profile ocean activists and their participation with various conservation organizations.
Among the activists are actor Pierce Brosnan, supermodel Tatjana Patitz and world-renowned architect Harry Gesner.
Gesner, who was highlighted for his support for Oceana, is known for his visionary style; his Wave House was an inspiration for the Sydney Opera House. He is also a WWII veteran and an avid surfer.
‚ÄúWaiting for the wave, seeing it, paddling for it, taking it, dropping in ‚ÄĒ that‚Äôs my church, that‚Äôs where I go,‚ÄĚ he told Malibu.
