Beyond the Sea

Leonard DiCaprio makes a splash in O.C.

Actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio

Oceana’s SeaChange Summer Party is always an A-list event—Sheryl Crow, Diane Lane, Morgan Freeman and Ted Danson have been counted among the special guests. And this year’s soiree brings a whole new level of star power with Leonardo DiCaprio as the man of honor. The actor’s foundation has done much to bolster environmental awareness and fund preservation programs, and that’s what Oceana is all about. The alfresco fete will be held at a private villa overlooking the sands of Laguna. There will be fabulous food, sensational sips and great entertainment, of course. And a live auction will have partygoers (who are paying $2,500 each for tickets) dueling over offerings like a one-week stay at a waterfront castle in Costa Careyes and a glorious seven-day Burgess luxury catamaran charter through the Great Barrier Reef (aboard the 145-foot Hemisphere superyacht, no less). To up the ante, organizers have opened the auction for absentee bidding, so you don’t even have to be there to win! With a lineup like that, the group is sure to hit its $1 million goal—money it will use to support programs aimed at saving the Earth’s oceans. King of the world, indeed!
