Martin Sheen and Alyssa Milano were two of the many celebrities out recently to help raise funds for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
Besides Sheen and Milano, attendees also included Capt. Paul Watson, founder of the organization and star of Whale Wars, Sarah Silverman, who headlined the event, Richard Dean Anderson, Jennifer Tilly, Michael Buffer and Joanna Krupa.
The Stand Up for the Oceans event raised funds for Sea Shepherd's upcoming Antarctic Whale Defense Fund.
Sea Shepherd's founder, Capt. Paul Watson, praised the support from the donors that showed up to the event, saying, "Thanks to our supporters, we raised thousands of dollars to enable us to defend the great whales once again from Japanese harpoon vessels during our upcoming Operation Divine Wind campaign. We will return to the Southern Ocean with renewed fervor to stop the whalers from committing these illegal crimes against nature once and for all!"
