The Thirst Gala is an annual fundraising event and photograph/multimedia exhibition held in Los Angeles each June. The Thirst Gala has been hosted by "90210" star AnnaLynne McCord and co-hosted by Chyler Leigh of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy", MTV's "Teen Wolf" star, J.R. Bourne, Pauley Perrette of "NCIS" and Kirsten Vangsness of "Criminal Minds".
The Thirst Gala educates and engages guests, by connecting them first hand to the people and communities we are helping. Throughout the night, guests are provided with multiple donation options, such as live and silent auctions, text-to-give technology and other opportunities.
The 2012 Thirst Gala filled the stunning Beverly Hilton nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills, California. The event attracted an elite group of 600 guests who enjoyed participating in an inspiring, entertaining and life-changing evening that saw over $188,000 raised to give safe, clean drinking water to those who need it most.
