RAINFOREST FOUNDATION GALA

On 8 May the semi-annual Rainforest Foundation gala will take place at Carnegie Hall. Sting and wife, Trudie Styler, have gathered up Brian Wilson, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Feist and Chris Botti, not to mention several special guests including the possible “unofficial” debut of the couple’s 17-year-old musical prodigy daughter, Coco Sumner. MacAndrews & Forbes and Crate & Barrel are co-sponsoring the night, which includes a gala dinner in the new ballroom of the renovated Plaza Hotel. Till 10 April, charitybuzz.com is going to auction off an unprecedented “All Access” pass that includes an exclusive closed-set dress rehearsal, a private box at Carnegie Hall, and a table at the Plaza Hotel’s Grand Ballroom.
“Once again I have the great privilege of producing an all-star line-up for the Rainforest Foundation benefit at Carnegie Hall,” said Trudie Styler. “It is a tremendous thrill for me to work with so many responsible and generous artists, who all step up with such grace to make this show one of the most unique and talked-about concerts of the calendar. What inspires us all to keep participating in this regular event is recognizing the importance of taking care of our precious planet, and working to protect it from further degradation. The money we raise will improve the lives of so many indigenous people – giving them safer water, protected homelands and a sustainable future – and in turn will make us all the beneficiaries of a healthier planet.”
