The stars wore furs and fine jewels, the films followed fresh storylines, and the streets of Hollywood were sparkling with class.


Proceeds from the event will underwrite anti-bullying programs in schools and on major social media platforms. Boo2Bullying’s youth empowerment initiatives and video content provide outreach, mentoring, inspiration and support for bullied youth and their families. The organization strives to give children and teens the tools to foster a healthy self-image, learn to accept diversity, speak their truth, and positively impact those around them.
