Robert Pattinson was the toast of the town Thursday night at the sixth annual GO GO Gala.
GO Campaign co-founder and CEO Scott Fifer thanked Pattinson on behalf of the 25 impoverished Cambodian girls he indirectly helped with an auction contribution. The actor donated a meet-and-greet on the set of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” for the non-profit’s online auction two years ago that sold to woman in Chicago for $80,000. That funding led to the creation of a Program Advancing Girls’ Education (PAGE) in Cambodia.
“It’s been remarkable how one auction item from a person in the Hollywood community can translate into changing the lives of girls forever,” Fifer said before the gala.
The PAGE home will expand from 25 to 35 girls early next year.
The “Twilight” star continued his charitable streak by participating in the liveliest auction of the night. Pattinson bid $5,600 to win a cello made out of recycled material (built by Paraguay’s Recycled Orchestra of Cateura). The overall event raised more than $500,000.
Pattinson grabbed a drink at the bar before chatting with friends during cocktail hour. R.Pattz was smiley and chatty with a group of friends, acting super talkative and in a great mood while mingling and supporting the charity.
Pattinson sat down to dinner where he continued to chat with folks at his table as event host Adam Shankman began the show. The 27-year-old star ate and drank while chatting with a female pal sitting next to him during the bash.
At one point during the night, charity co-founder Scott Fifer thanked Pattinson for being one of the online auction prizes several years ago (a lucky bidder paid $85,000 for a Twilight set visit to meet him!) and Rob blushed and smiled as the crowd cheered for him.
Pattinson also quietly bid on and won a cello made out of recycled material for $5,600.
The usually sullen Robert Pattinson, 27, threw his head back with laughter at the GO GO charity gala in Los Angeles last night.
The Twilight star, who’s had a tumultuous love-life of late, couldn’t control his laughter at the charity dinner which was raising funds for orphans and vulnerable children around the world.
Rob, who was recently spotted working out with a personal trainer, even bid at the auction which was held after dinner.
Rob appeared to be in good spirits as he bid in the auction, in which he was once an item.
In a previous year, a meet-and-greet with the star on the set of Twilight was up for grabs at the Go-Go auction – and sold to a Twilight super fan for $85,000.
This year, according to E! News, Rob bid on a recycled ‘cello which he won for a mere $5,600.
The budding musician reportedly enjoyed cocktails before sitting down to the charity dinner.
