We are still full of love and inspiration from last night’s Unite4: Humanity event! We hope you followed us on Twitter to see live updates and pictures from the event. If not – don’t worry! We’re dedicating this blog post to recapping our experience for you. And, admittedly, we’re also excited to have a reason to relive these memories and special moments.
The event was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California. The unite4: good foundation and Variety are responsible for the event and for choosing the honorees. unite4: good’s Founder Anthony Melikhov (pictured below with Executive Director Dr. Leslie Morrison Faerstien) have made it their mission to empower individuals to give back to their community; this event, specifically, honors exemplary heroes and leaders in the entertainment industry who have used their influential voices for good.
The location (pictured above) was beautiful! We were able to watch the celebrities arrive and even had an opportunity to talk with them before the awards were presented. The seven honorees included Aaron & Lauren Paul, Halle Berry, Josh Hutcherson, P!nk, Ewan McGregor, and Christina Applegate.
There were so many emotionally-charged speeches throughout the event. We got to hear from celebrities like Amy Poehler, who spoke out about her friend and colleague Harris Wittel’s recent passing due to a drug overdose.
But the most exciting part of the night was presenting our own award, the Saint Vintage Love Cures Award, to Christina Applegate for her work with Right Action for Women. Christina is a breast cancer survivor, so she has made it her mission to raise awareness and take action against breast cancer.
As you know, SV Founder Paige Jansen-Nichols is also a 2x cancer survivor, which made this ceremony even more special. This was the first time we presented this award and we couldn’t have found a better, more deserving candidate.
Here are some more pictures from the event! We got to hang out with P!nk, Halle Berry, Queen Latifah, and even Sarah Hyland!
We even got to display some of our current and NEW Couture pieces from our special Saint Vintage Collection! 50% of proceeds from every accessory sold is donated to various cancer research organizations.
