Last
night in Tinseltown, celebrities crowded onto the red carpet while
photographers’ flashbulbs went off like fireworks. But it wasn’t the premiere
of a new movie. It was the grand opening of the Bob Barker Building, PETA’s new West Coast headquarters,
located in L.A.’s Echo
Park.

The
famed game show host and animal defender extraordinaire was on hand to toast
his namesake building, an expansion that will allow PETA’s Communications Department
to be in the midst of the many celebrities who help promote our work. peta2 is also setting up shop
in the all-vegan, dog-friendly space to carry out its teen and college outreach
from the entertainment and culture capital of the world. And the Marketing and
International Grassroots Campaigns departments will organize PETA’s international
actions for animal protection from within the 82-year-old structure, now
freshly renovated to be eco-friendly.

At the star-studded grand opening were Christian Serratos, Stephanie Pratt, Moby, Kate del Castillo, Sasha Grey, Renee Olstead, Fivel Stewart, Diane Warren, and the stars of Doin’ It for Love. Guests enjoyed vegan
food from Echo Park’s own Mohawk Bend, Elf Café, and
Sage Organic Vegan Bistro on the rooftop of the Bob Barker Building, which
offers a picturesque view of the Hollywood sign from one side and the twinkling
lights of downtown L.A. from the other.

The man of the hour, Bob Barker, told reporters, “I support a long
list of organizations, but I support PETA because I think that internationally
it is probably the most productive of all animal-oriented organizations. And it
doesn’t just try to help animals—it really
produces. I think you get more for your dollar invested in PETA than you do [with] most any other organization.”
