Nicole Richie red carpet

Nicole Richie struck a pose on the black carpet at the annual Summer Spectacular event in Beverly Hills, which raised more than $500,000 for The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness.

Other celebs in attendance included Robert Duvall, Ryan O’Neal and Kris and Bruce Jenner, and the crowd was over 700 strong. Attorney Robert Shapiro founded the organization in 2006 following the death of his son Brent, who passed away in 2005 after drinking alcohol and taking ecstasy. “I know one thing,” Shapiro told attendees. “It takes a life to save a life. We hope we’re saving thousands of lives with what we are doing.”

Seeing as Nicole was busted for a DUI back in 2006 for driving on the wrong side of the freeway (she admitted to using marijuana and Vicodin at the time), she def knows a thing or two about getting clean and sober!
