For the tenth consecutive year, FOX Broadcasting celebrated the start of the new television season with the Fall Eco-Casino Party, presented by Ford and Xfinity. Several of FOX's biggest stars appeared at the event, which was held at the Bungalow Club in Santa Monica, California, on September 8. Over the course of the evening, FOX raised $25,000 to donate to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, Heal the Bay, The Nature Conservancy, and the Environmental Media Association.
The party brought together stars from FOX's most successful returning series, such as New Girl, So You Think You Can Dance, and Family Guy, as well as newcomers from Mulaney, Gotham, and Red Band Society.
As in past years, FOX worked to minimize the event's carbon footprint by using bio-diesel-powered trucks to transport equipment, choosing LED lights over traditional incandescent bulbs, distributing invitations digitally, using casino chips made from recycled materials, purchasing local, organic, and sustainable food products, printing reusable signage, renting furniture and decor, composting all food and beverage waste, and recycling all cans, bottles, cardboard and paper used by staff and guests.
