The OneHope Foundation Celebrates Its First Annual Humanitarian Awards In An Evening of "Hope and Happiness"--Allan Peach

On November 13, 2010, the OneHope Foundation brought "Hope and Happiness" to the hills of Malibu with their first annual Humanitarian Awards celebration.  The charitable event was held at the spectacular Malibu Rocky Oaks Vineyard Estate, a $65 million home overlooking the largest vineyard in Malibu.  The OneHope Foundation is a organization that helps raise funding for other worthy charities, with the proceeds of the evening going to four very special causes: The American Red Cross Santa Monica Chapter, Keep A Child Alive, OneXOne, and North Hope.

Numerous celebrities were in attendance and  the venue was packed with beautiful people giving to an even more beautiful cause.  At the end of the evening there was an auction for some incredible items, including Muhammad Ali's autographed boxing clothes, and Bruce Springsteen's autographed guitar.

It is still not to late to donate to the OneHope foundation,, where 100% of the proceeds goes to partner non-profit charities.  Visit their website.
