Lily Collins and Robert Pattinson play host for GO Campaign virtual fundraiser as ambassadors

Lily Collins and Robert Pattinson served as hosts of the 15th annual GO Campaign Gala on Saturday, which is the organization’s annual Hollywood fundraiser.

Like the 2020 gala, the event, held at Cornerstone Plaza in Los Angeles, was a mostly virtual experience due to the ongoing concerns of COVID-19.

All funds raised will benefit the non-profit’s global COVID-19 relief efforts, promote racial justice in the U.S., and raise money to educate children in Africa and Latin America along with girls in Afghanistan, according to the organizations website OneCause.com.

Pattinson became official ambassadors of the GO Campaign in 2015; Collins joined him in 2018, making her the first female ambassador of the organization.    

On this night, Collins opted for color in the fashion department decked out in a yellow dress, of sorts, that was worn over black pants with a matching yellow stripe.

The Emily In Paris star, 32, stepped out on black heels and had her long brown tresses pulled back off her face in a loose ponytail.

Pattinson, 35, went with a stylish black suit that he paired with a white dress shirt and black shoes.

The annual gala brings together celebrities, project partners from the field, social activists, supporters and top rate entertainment that included SIA, Jewel, MILCK and Levi Evans.

This year’s event also featured an online auction, which included donations from celebrity guests, to raise funds for the organization through prizes like plane tickets to Paris that were courtesy of Air France.   

Founded in 2006, the organization supports projects at the grassroots level that bring direct relief to children in need of education and vocational training, medical care, enrichment programs, and basic human rights.

Thanks to a private gift that covers operating and fundraising expenses, 100% of all public donations to the GO Campaign go directly to programming costs, and donors are allowed to choose the project they want to support.  

‘GO Campaign has a proven track record of making real, meaningful change in communities around the world,’ Pattinson, 36, said in a statement ahead of the event, as reported by People.

‘The funds raised at the GO Gala bring opportunities and resources to some of the most vulnerable children that may otherwise be left behind. Every dollar donated to GO Campaign is a dollar invested wisely in the future generation.’
