Project Active, a nonprofit that distributes sports equipment to kids in war-torn nations, hosted a benefit gala at La Valencia Hotel. Some 250 guests, including Andy Baldwin of ABC's The Bachelor and Project Active founder Mitch Thrower, raised enough to send more than $150,000 worth of aid supplies and sports equipment to the needy. The evening featured live music by Jasmine and MattCommerce and a special performance by opera singers Victoria Robertson and Daniel Hendrick.
