First Art For Life Miami Beach Benefit Gala Raises Over $575K

Russell Simmons, Danny Simmons, and Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation raised over $575,000 at their 1st Art For Life
Miami Beach Gala. The Event honored Grammy®Award winning artists John Legend and Wyclef Jean,, TV personality Suze
Orman and Real Estate Developer R. Donahue Peebles at The Bath Club for their efforts in helping to improve the lives of others
and in support of youth arts education. The event’s Platinum Sponsor was R. Donahue and Katrina Peebles; Hennessy,
Anheuser-Busch, and Wal-Mart were Silver Sponsors. Chip and Allison Brady, Tracy Wilson Mourning and Loren Ridinger
served as event chairs and welcomed celebrities including Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade and Alonzo Mourning, NFL star
Larry Johnson; director Brett Ratner, Creed’s Scott Stapp and his wife Jaclyn, singer Paulina Rubio and comedian Pauly Shore.
Emmy®Award winning ABC journalist John Quinones served as the night’s auctioneer helping to raise over $200K during the
live auction. Packages included a 1-on-1 with Alonzo Mourning, which Suze Orman bought for her nephew, a trip to the
Vatican, two tickets to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and a a”Happy Birthday” rendition by John Legend. The most important
auction item however, was when guests pledged $1,000 to sponsor a child to participate in the foundation’s arts education
program for a year. Anjelina Jolie and Brad Pitt couldn’t be there in person but surprised honoree Wyclef Jean by sponsoring 5
Rush Kids in his honor; Dwyane Wade, Larry Johnson & Julissa Bermudez and John Legend each sponsored 10 Rush Kids; as
did Amber and Loren Ridinger, and event Honorary Chairman P. Diddy.
