Adrian Grenier will once again host the charity:water Ball this December.

Last year’s event was a huge success, raising over $500,000 and featuring guests such as Matthew Modine and auction lots from Dustin Hoffman.

Charity:Water was established by Scott Harrison, a Manhattan party promoter, in 2006. While on a freelance photography trip in Africa, Harrison was shocked to see victims of contaminated water suffering long and painful deaths.

“I had been selling $350 bottles of Grey Goose vodka at clubs, and here were 5,000 people, some who had come from neighboring countries to see a doctor,” Harrison told Bloomberg. “I was devastated.”

This year’s event will take place on December 14 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York. More info here.
