The Art of Elysium celebrated the sixth annual black tie charity gala called “Heaven” on January 12, where David Arquette received the “Spirit Of Elysium” Award.

Sponsored by Audi and powered by Cîroc vodka, as well as category sponsor, Tweezerman, thecharitable  event raised over $220,000 for children’s hospital. Quite amazing, to say the least!

Whether it was Joe Manganiello catching up with Anna Kendrick, Busy Phillips, and Jessica Szhor (who knew they were friends?), or Patricia Arquette up-front during cocktail hour, enjoying the sounds of Mariachi el Bronx, everyone sipped on cocktails made with the delicious line of Ciroc vodkas, including a delicious Ciroc Red Berry, mixed with a fresh pomegranate puree.

Heaven is The Art of Elysium’s largest annual fundraiser, supporting the majority of the foundation’s operating costs, and ensuring the continuation and expansion of its mission to make art a catalyst for social change, and bring creativity into the lives of tens of thousands of hospitalized children. Colleen Atwood was chosen to serve as the 2013 Visionary, creating her version of Heaven “where the sea meets the sky in the mist of the eye”, and David Arquette was honored with the 2013 “Spirit of Elysium” Award for his involvement in the charity.

Musical guests included Mariachi el Bronx during cocktail hour, and performances by Josh Radin and Chad Gendason while guests enjoyed food prepared by Wolfgang Puck. To finish out the night, guests enjoyed an intimate serenade from John Legend at the after-party. This year’s gala was title sponsored by Audi and powered by Cîroc Vodka and category sponsor, Tweezerman. Colleen Atwood’s Heaven was generously produced by Yifat Oren & Associates.

Also the celebs kept things safe with CIROC’s Safe Rides program. Stacey Keibler and Julianne Hough were some of the celebs to take advantage of a safe drive to and from the event. Very Smart ladies!
