Affair: Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation 16th Art for Life Gala

When: Saturday, July 18, 2015 @ 6PM

Hot Spot: Fairview Farms, Bridgehampton, NY

Deets: This Roaring Twenties themed cocktail party and dinner hosted by Soledad O'Brien will honor Dave Chappelle, Ava DuVernay & Michaela and Simon DePury. It will be followed by performances by top talent including Bell Biv Devoe. Art For Life is the summer's hottest charity event, where attendees rub shoulders with Hollywood heavyweights.

Art saves lives, it is that simple. Rush Philanthropic believes that if you give young people the opportunity to practice and appreciate art — whether poetry, music, dance, or the visual arts — then you will see lives transformed as young people learn to value their own unique voices and visions. It is this type of impact we aspire to see happen and that your support will make possible.

Your contribution helps support the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation’s mission of providing inner city youth with significant exposure and access to the arts, and to offering exhibition opportunities for underrepresented emerging artists.
