Ian Somerhalder's Foundation Charity event

April 21st, Ian Somerhalder (Actor)  hosted an intimate and exclusive gathering of tastemakers, influencers and celebrities all in to support his foundation whose goal is to improve the environment.

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation’s mission is to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to affect  the planet and its creatures.

Ian introduced a world-renowned graffiti artist Erik Wahl into his gathering of guests and said “I called him up and asked him to perform for us tonight.”

Wahl took to an easel with a screen projecting U2’s “Beautiful Day” and painted a portrait of Bono within minutes. The celebrity guests got up from their seats and sat on the grass in awe. Ian was so excited and kept saying  “Oh my God! He’s INCREDIBLE.” Repeatedly. 

After the performance, Wahl surprised Ian with a portrait of the Vampire star. Later that evening, Ian joked to his beau Nina Dobrev, “I bet I could draw one of these of you…” and Nina asked for a painting as well. Ian plans to sell these paintings for his charity “The Ian Somerhalder Foundation” as they sure are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“The coming together of like-minded individuals through action is what's needed to see wide spread change for us, our planet and its creatures. This event provides a platform for individuals who want to see tangible results through active collaboration between celebrities, business leaders and individuals,” said Ian Somerhalder.  And Celebrities who attented the event includes: Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries), Nina Dobrev  (Vampire Diaries), Persia White (Vampire Diaries), Julian Morris (Pretty Little Liars), Amy Paffrath (Hollywood 411), Kady Z (Top 100 Pop Recording Artist), Anita Gohari (Shahs of Sunset), Malese Jow (Big Time Rush), Erik Wahl (performing graffiti artist), Cassie Scerbo (Make it or Break it), Scott Porter (Hart of Dixie), Maggie Grace, Claire Holt, Kayla Ewell and many more.
