Host Sebastian Copeland was joined by friends Orlando Bloom (pictured above) and Rosario Dawson to celebrate the evening in support of the Sebastian Copeland Foundation. The invite-only event treated guests to their first glimpse of CityCenter, the dazzling vertical city destined to transform the Las Vegas Strip.

Vdara Hotel & Spa is designed for those who love the excitement of Las Vegas but prefer to enjoy it in an exclusive, non-gaming, smoke-free environment. Physically connected to Bellagio and directly adjacent to ARIA Resort & Casino, Vdara will offer access to all of the excitement of Las Vegas, while providing a retreat from it all.

Solidifying CityCenter’s commitment to sustainability, Vdara has achieved LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. Sharing in Vdara’s commitment to sustainability, the star-studded evening was be hosted by famed photographer, adventurer and environmental advocate Sebastian Copeland. His pledge to environmental activism and global awareness has grown into a passionate dedication to the causes of sustainability and the preservation of the planet. He is currently working on the launch of the Sebastian Copeland Foundation whose primary mission is to advocate from the front lines of climate change. Copeland’s friends and award-winning actors Orlando Bloom and Rosario Dawson joined him to celebrate the evening and support the launch of his charity.

Copeland stated, “We stand at a crossroads in our development as a species. After transportation, buildings are the single greatest source of green house emissions. “Green” building and development stand to reduce carbon emissions into the air by up to forty percent. Vdara, with its LEED certification, has committed to the simple notion that luxury and responsibility are not mutually exclusive and hence stands as a model of innovation. Vdara and CityCenter set a new standard for Las Vegas, one which hopefully others will follow.”

The Patrón Spirits Company, including Patrón, Ultimat Vodka and Pyrat Rum, as well as Veuve Clicquot champagne owned by Moet Hennessy USA, are sponsors of the grand opening gala.
