On May 16, the Humane Society of the United States celebrated its annual Los Angeles benefit gala in the ceremonial Ballroom of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The event raised funds for the organization's farm animal protection work and its Pets for Life program to provide free veterinary care to underserved pet owners; and honored individuals for their outstanding, tireless advocacy on behalf of animals.

 

The evening began with a cocktail reception where guests viewed educational art installations enlightening them to the plight of billions of animals in factory farms and dogs and cats living in poverty. The reception was followed by a gourmet vegan dinner designed by Chef Leslie Durso and The Beverly Wilshire culinary team, an awards show, live auction, entertainment and after-party.


Ed Asner received the Lifetime Achievement Award from The HSUS and Cheri Shankar accepted the organization's Humane Hero Award. Seattle-based company GreaterGood accepted the Humane Corporate Award for its generous contributions and support of animal welfare initiatives.



"Nothing is more important that the Humane Society of the United States, nothing is more important than animals - this is where I am most comfortable.  If this is what I can do, if I have any sort of voice in this world to help and protect and do what I can to help these animals survive" said Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting backstage at the benefit.

"The Big Bang Theory" star wowed the crowd wearing a Laila Rose skirt, Helmet Lang blazer, ALC shirt and Kurt Geiger heels. 


"Teen Wolf" star Crystal Reed was another red carpet standout wearing a pistachio colored strapless hand draped evening gown from Rubin Singer's Resort 2015 collection.


Other famous faces in attendance included "The Vampire Diaries" star Paul Wesley wearing an Original Penguin suit, Renee Olstead wearing a Sue Wong gown, model Ireland Baldwin, actress Cloris Leachman, Laura Vandervoot, model Jayde Nicole, musician Moby, Priscilla Presley, singer Pia Toscano, actress Frances Fisher and "American Horror Story" star James Cromwell.
