I hosted my first charity event with Susan Sarandon on September 8th, 2010 to benefit Artists for Peace and Justice. APJ is a non-profit organization founded by award winning filmmaker and friend, Paul Haggis, that works to provide an education, hot meals, clean drinking water and regular medical treatments to the children living in the slums of Haiti.
BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the "Ping Pong with the Models for Haiti" event.. We raised a lot of money that night and your support and generosity are greatly appreciated! Special thanks to Susan Sarandon, Judah Friedlander, Scott Lipps, Franck Raharinosy, Alise Shoemaker, and Ryan Willard for helping make the event possible and such a huge success! ;)
One great highlight from the night: It was my first time helping run a live auction... and we managed to get a pair of Wall Street 2 movie premiere tickets donated by Susan Sarandon up to $8,000 AND still had the losing bidder donate his $7,000 anyway!!! haha SO AMAZZZING!!!
If you were unable to attend the event and still would like to donate.. please feel free to do so on their website.. www.apjnow.org .. Thanks!!! xo
