Chrysalis butterfly ball raises more than $1 million to help the homeless
Having had his own problems with drugs and alcohol, Arnold said, “I could very easily be on the other side of this fence instead of having the honor of hosting this.”
The ball, held at the Mandeville Canyon estate of Hayward Kaiser and Susan Harris, raised more than $1 million for Chrysalis, thanks to an outpouring of support from a star-studded crowd of 800 that included Jon Favreau, LL Cool J, Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Garner, Amanda Anka and Jason Bateman, Rosetta and Balthazar Getty, Odette and Dave Annable, Brad Goreski, Molly Sims, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Abigail Spencer, Soleil Moon Frye, comedian Whitney Cummings, Ashley Greene of “Twilight,” Matt Lanter of “90210” Ryan Phillippe of “The Lincoln Lawyer,” Chris Kattan of “Saturday Night Live” and Eric Dane of “Grey’s Anatomy.”
The gala was co-chaired by Dana Walden, co-chairman of 20th Century Fox Television; Donna Langley, co-chairman of Universal Pictures; Rick Hess, head of Creative Artist Agency’s Film Finance Group; and ball founder Rebecca Gayheart Dane. The event honored Scott Stuber, producer of “Role Models” and other films; Richard Weitz, board member at the talent agency WME; and “Tron” star Olivia Wilde.
