Compassionate celebrities such as Kat Von D, Moby, Kevin Nealon, Mya, Evanna Lynch, and Russell Simmons were amongst those in attendance. The Gala—which supported MFA’s efforts to expose cruelty to farmed animals through their undercover investigations—was hosted by Marco Antonio Regil and Daisy Fuentes, and included a VIP reception, gourmet dinner, silent auction, and awards ceremony.
