“Nothing — whether a force of nature or a typhoon or a leading lady scheduled — could keep me from being here,” Ewan McGregor announced to a filled ballroom at Thursday’s Go Campaign Gala at the Montage Beverly Hills.

McGregor was recently named an ambassador for the Go Campaign, which supports orphans and vulnerable children around the world and connects donors to high-impact grassroots projects aimed at improving communities.

Although McGregor was the host for the evening, the obvious popular table was with fellow Go Campaign Ambassador Robert Pattinson. The “Twilight” star sat alongside fiancee FKA Twigs, who ended the evening with a musical performance; Kate Hudson, Katy Perry, Vin Diesel, Jerrod Carmichael and director Luc Besson.

At the live auction, Perry nabbed a Mexican fiesta that catered to 50 for $5,500. The “Dark Horse” singer was so excited that she won the bidding, she victoriously threw both hands in the air.

Before the time for donations came, founder & CEO Scott Fifer announced the org’s new Go Girls! initiative, which looks to fund more education programs to empower girls around the world. Go Campaign also raised money to build a school for a youth orchestra that uses recycled instruments.

“You’re all a room of beautiful possibilities,” said Fifer.

Additionally, Beachbody president Jon Congdon agreed to match each donation to up to $50,000.

    In the ten days leading up to the gala, fans of Rob and Twigs raised over $12,000. This was an international effort, with thousands of fans donating whatever they could afford, starting with as little as $5.
