Colleen Atwood was chosen as this year’s “Visionary,” creating her version of heaven for the event, which she described as “where the sea meets the sky in the mist of the eye.” THE PLAYERS Jennifer Howell, Eva Amurri Martino, Justin Bartha, Topher Grace, Julianne Hough, Stacy Keibler, Kelly Osbourne, Christian Siriano THE HIGHLIGHTS Musical maestros Joshua Radin and John Legend serenaded the crowd during the Wolfgang Puck-presented dinner. Anna Kendrick and Ashley Madekwe spent the evening passing secretive notes back and forth at their table as Arquette garnered laughs from the audience, proclaiming in his speech, “Strangely enough, this isn’t the first time I’ve partied in the 2nd Street Tunnel!” He then went on to accept the honor and discuss his meaningful experiences with the organization. The evening came to a close with an encore performance by Legend at the intimate after-party. Michael Kovac, Jason Merritt and Jeff Vespa/Getty Images
