Russell Simmons held his 14th Annual ‘Art for Life Gala: A Field of Dreams’ this Saturday in the Hamptons. Moguls, actors, musicians, and philanthropists rubbed shoulders at the fundraiser dedicated to establishing art programs for inner-city youth.
Tyler Perry, Anne Pasternak, Walter Mosley, Sam Englebardt, and William D. Johnson were among the honorees, while Rick Ross, Maxwell, Estelle and Doug E. Fresh entertained the crowd.
The star-studded event, which took place at the picturesque Fairview Farms in Bridgehampton and raised over $1.5 million to help develop inner city art programs, was co-hosted by Soledad O’Brien and attended by a list of celebs — including Anthony Anderson, Melanie Fiona, Al Sharpton, Tichina Arnold, Star Jones, Angela Simmons, Michael Strahan and his fiance Nicole Murphy.
