Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA to Fete Halle Berry at Kaleidoscope Ball
Goldie Hawn will host the third annual fundraiser.
Oscar winner Halle Berry has been tapped for another honor: The Extant star will receive the Kaleidoscope Award at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA’s third annual Kaleidoscope Ball on May 2.
The event — to be held at 3LABS in Culver City — is presented by Harry Winston and will be hosted by Academy Award winner Goldie Hawn. The night’s other honorees include Kelvin Davis, who will take home the hospital’s highest honor, the Philanthropic Leadership Award, and actress Halston Sage, who will be feted with the Young Luminary Award. Grammy nominee Aloe Blacc is set to take the stage to entertain the crowd.
Mattel has upped the ante on traditional fundraisers by eliciting the help of famous street artists to create a selection of pieces that will be auctioned off to support the evening’s theme, “Los Angeles: An Art-Full City.” Leading the charge will be street artist Mr. Brainwash, who will create a custom Mattel ride-on car for the auction, as well as donating his “Life Is Beautiful” sculptures that will be featured on each table.
L.A. notable artist Robert Vargas will paint live at the event, while other artists who have contributed works for the event include: PichiAvo, Shepard Fairey, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Ed Ruscha, Bill Wegman, Charles Arnoldi, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Mike Stilkey, Billy Al Bengston, Sage Vaughn and Charming Baker.
The evening, co-chaired by Amanda Brown, Beth Friedman, Chloë Sommer, Marcelle Frey and Tim Campbell, will include a menu by Wolfgang Puck Catering. Proceeds from the dinner benefit UCLA Children’s Discovery and Innovation Institute at Mattel Children’s Hospital.
