Julia Louis Dreyfus is to host the Natural Resources Defense Council's Gala in Southern California this month, and guests such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Redford have already been confirmed.

The event will take place at the Beverly Wilshire on April 25, and will feature music by Maroon 5 and Rosanna Arquette. A short film featuring DiCaprio and Redford that outlines the accomplishments of NRDC’s Southern California office will also be shown.

“You can be tough doing bad things, and tough doing good things. NRDC, in my opinion, is tough doing good things,” said Robert Redford. The legendary actor, filmmaker and environmental advocate has been an NRDC trustee for more than 30 years. The group’s Southern California office, one of the first LEED Platinum green buildings in the world, was dedicated to Mr. Redford in 2003, which he said “fills me with an enormous sense of pride.”

NRDC is probably the most effective environmental organization in the world,” said Leonardo DiCaprio, an NRDC trustee. “[They are] willing to take on major corporations and the government itself to hold them accountable for the environmental policy that’s out there.”

More information about the event can be found here.

DiCaprio has also launched an auction to celebrate Earth Day on April 22.

The star is auctioning memorabilia including signed costumes from his films and the chance to accompany him to the premiere of his latest film.

“By bidding on these items at, people will help Global Green combat climate change and pursue important environmental imperatives, such as greening our nation’s schools, housing, cities and more," he said.
