Trudie and Sting were given honours for their work with the Rainforest Foundation organization for which they have raised more than $25 million with their benefit concerts since 1989.
Guests were treated to a special four song surprise performance by Sting who performed 'Fragile', 'Message In A Bottle', 'Every Breath You Take', and 'Shoot The Breeze' with Dustin Hoffman. It was also nice to see Lyle Workman playing guitar with Sting again for the first time since 2006.
Over $1.3 million was raised for Oceana from the evening's festivities.
