Vegan reality star Kelly Osbourne is set to host the fourth annual “Hidden Heroes Gala,” a celebration that honors the undercover investigators and supporters of the international animal rights non-profit organization, Mercy for Animals (MFA).
“To be held once again at the landmark Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles, this black-tie event will move and inspire you,” says the organization on the gala’s official website. “Enjoy a chic black-carpet reception with celebrities, vegan appetizers, cocktails, and more under the tranquil Southern California sky.”
In addition to Kelly Osbourne, MFA’s charity event will welcome numerous vegan stars who will act as presenters or members of the honorary celebrity committee. Vegan actor Alec Baldwin, former football player and social justice advocate Colin Kaepernick, “Sopranos” star Edie Falco, actor Kimberly Elise, vegan LGBTQ+ activist Alan Cumming, Vegan Lady Boss and Smarties candy co-president Liz Dee, as well as Kat Von D, Moby, Alicia Silverstone, and others will lend their star power support to the event.
