I can't get enough of the reports about Rob at the GO GO Gala for the charity, Go Campaign. They were so appreciative of Rob's contributions and his attendance. It was awesome to also look in our archives and read about the initial announcement for the auction that led to the girls' school in Cambodia. Click HERE and HERE for the flashback posts.

The author of the LA Times article we posted HERE and that will appear in the Nov. 24th print edition, wrote another article about the gala and reaped more praise on Rob and his giving heart. Excerpt (including the photo captions) from Society News LA:
Bravo Robert Pattinson for using your celebrity to help the Go Campaign to give the world’s children a brighter future and by continuing to contribute generously, as recently as the Nov. 14 GO GO Gala, by bidding with enthusiasm at the night’s live auction. 

More than 200 guests – Pattinson included – converged on the Bel-Air Bay Club in the Pacific Palisades for the charity’s annual Gala. Combining ticket and auction sales, the affair raised more than $500,000 to help children in need everywhere by providing them with homes, education, rehabilitation, safety from sex trafficking and more.
Former US Senate aide, attorney and script writer Scott Fifer - whose TV writing credits include two Primetime Emmy broadcasts – said he first launched the charity after traveling to Tanzania and meeting a group of orphans. Through a network of “local heroes,” who understand the needs of their communities, the Go Campaign has since helped more than 41,000 children. The varied projects have included a girls’ school in Siem Reap, Cambodia, funded thanks to Pattinson. 
“I can’t forget what Rob Pattinson did for us that had tremendous impact,” Fifer said from onstage. “Two years ago, Rob generously donated a ‘meet & greet’ on the set of ’Twilight Breaking Dawn’ for our online auction. And so we put it on Charity Buzz ( and it sold to a woman in Chicago for $80,000.” After recounting the success of the girls’ home, Fifer added, “So Rob, there are 25 girls in Cambodia who wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t just say thank you. Thank you for your kindness.” 
So was the meet & greet worth $80,000 to the buyer? Apparently so. In a subsequent conversation, Fifer said that same woman later paid handsomely for an advance screening of the film. Attending the Gala with friends, Pattinson bought himself a cello – made from trash found in a landfill – from the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, Paraguay, with his bid of $5,600.
