Despite tough economic times for non-profits, the Los Angeles Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO-LA) held this year’s annual Business and Entertainment Charity Event Saturday on the grounds of the iconic Playboy Mansion which raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Organization (IREO), a non-profit organization promoting and delivering renewable sources of energy to help bring sustainability to underdeveloped communities while creating a better and cleaner world.

More than 1,600 dignitaries, celebrity supporters, guests and EO members from around the globe were in attendance as Hugh Hefner was presented with a humanitarian award and honorary membership in EO-LA for his outstanding entrepreneurial accomplishments. 

Celebrities walking the green carpet at this exclusive gala included music legend Billy Idol, Ashley Rickards (One Tree Hill), Vanessa Lengies (Hawthorne), NBA star Olden Polynice, Darren Moore (Planet Green), Kim Director (Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2), Carla Ortiz (CSI Miami, Shut Up & Shoot), Jason Chambers (Human Weapon), Demián Bichir (Weeds), and Frank Leboeuf (World Cup Champion-France).

Those in attendance enjoyed a fun-filled night of entertainment, a silent auction and live performances by Cirque Berzerk and Ivan Kane’s legendary Forty Deuce burlesque show. KCRW-FM’s Raul Campos played tunes throughout the evening, TESLA electric vehicles were on display and Debbie Levin of the Environmental Media Association collected used cell phones, iPhones and Blackberries to help promote sustainable lifestyle choices and a cleaner environment.
 
IREO was founded in 2008 as a United Nations sponsored organization with the goals of meeting global environmental challenges posed by implementing pilot projects to educate and promote the use of renewable energies around the world. IREO’s vision is to build long-term partnerships with communities, governments, the United Nations, the private sector, NGOs, IGOs, academia and think tanks.

EO-LA is a non-profit organization designed to help successful business owners on their path to greater business and personal fulfillment. Membership is extended to entrepreneurs under the age of 50 who have founded and/or own a company with revenues of one million or more dollars annually. The L.A. chapter of EO is one of the fastest growing and most active in the United States.

  • where can i download The Expendables 3

  • Thanks for sharing, this is a fantastic article post. Want more.

  • It’s amazing for me to have a web site, which is helpful in favorof my know-how. thanks admin

  • very nice post, i certainly love this website, keep on it

  • Public policy is key here, and our states need to develop some strategies – – soon.

  • I wanted to thank you for this very good read!! I certainly enjoyed every little bit of it. I’ve got you saved as a favorite to look at new things you postÖ

  • whoah this blog is wonderful i love reading your articles. Keep up the great work! You know, a lot of people are hunting around for this info, you could help them greatly.

  • Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  • Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?Kudos, I appreciate it!

  • great points altogether, you just gained a new reader. What would you suggest in regards to your post that you made some days ago? Any positive?

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as wellyou have a great blog here! would you like to make some invite posts on my blog?

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • Excellent site. Lots of useful information here. I’m sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious. And of course, thanks for your sweat!

  • If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • I wanted to create you this little word to finally thank you so much once again on the pleasing basics you’ve provided in this article. This is quite surprisingly open-handed with people like you giving openly just what many of us would’ve advertised as an electronic book to earn some money for their own end, notably since you could have tried it if you ever considered necessary. These basics as well served to become fantastic way to fully grasp that many people have the same keenness just like my own to understand a good deal more around this problem. I am certain there are numerous more enjoyable situations in the future for individuals who see your blog post.
