Want to party with Damon Salvatore? Yeah, we thought so.

“The Vampire Diaries”
bad boy Ian Somerhalder is throwing a Halloween bash in Atlanta this fall, and he’s inviting all his fans to join in the fun. The Empoweresque party, a burlesque-themed costume ball, will benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

If you don’t already know all about Somerhalder’s environmentally focused organization, you can read more about its goals and prerogatives here. The IS Foundation focuses on a wide variety of causes – species like leatherback turtles in danger of extinction, ecosystems threatened by oil spills, and funding green energy initiatives.

While that may be some somber stuff, Somerhalder has decided to throw a party that’s about celebrating the planet and moving forward positively, not mourning the damage done. “I want to make this fun,” he tells Zap2it. “Yeah, there are some serious issues at hand, but what better way to celebrate the changes that our generation is going to make than to throw a party? There’s no reason to be all doom-and-gloom. Let’s dance. Let’s celebrate good will and initiative and people coming together to make change. That’s what ISF is about.”

Given the largely female fanbase of “The Vampire Diaries,” the party’s theme was chosen in the hopes of celebrating the power women have to change the world — but the ISF reps assure us that the party will be totally guy-friendly, too.

Expect surprise celebrity guests (yes, several of Somerhalder’s “TVD” co-stars have confirmed that they’ll be there), hot music, prize giveaways, and of course, the rare opportunity to see Somerhalder let loose on the dance floor. (Trust us… you don’t want to miss it.) This isn’t going to be a few streamers in a high school gym, vamp fans — ISF is going all out, so expect a glamorous evening.

“We’re going to blow it up,” Somerhalder teases. “It’s going to be a blast.”

You can get your tickets at the ISF website — and just remember, all the proceeds will go directly to saving the world, Somerhalder-style. You can also find information about discounted hotel rates in case you’re not Atlanta-based. (Or if you just want to make sure you don’t have to drive home after the festivities! Play safe!)

“When you hear a remix of a great song, it’s not reinventing the wheel, but it’s taking something familiar, remixing it, and making it cool again,” he says. “That’s what we want to do with this party. We want to take the idea of a benefit and light it up. It’s about getting all these young, inspired, awesome people into a room, and turning up the music.”

If you can’t make it out to the party but you still want to support the cause, here’s one very easy way to do it. Somerhalder has started a petition to stop the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, an oil pipeline in the works to transport the toxic material all the way from Alberta to the Texas Gulf coast. You can read all about the dangers of the highly faulty pipeline system which would expose countless towns to horrific toxins right here at the petition site. Somerhalder is urging fans to sign it, to call on President Obama to prioritize climate change and clean energy and stop the Keystone pipeline.
