Brad Pitt Stages Fund Raiser in New Orleans


Join me on March 10, 2012 at Make it Right Foundations benefit. The evening of March 10 Brad Pitt and Ellen DeGeneres are hosting "A Night to Make It Right" at the Hyatt Regency, featuring a celebrity guest list.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Brad Pitt's Make it Right Foundation will benefit from perhaps the biggest single-night fundraiser in New Orleans history.

The $1,000-a-seat fundraiser will feature Randy Jackson, Josh Brolin,Djimon Hounsou, Spike Lee, Blake Lively, Bennett Miller, Chris Paul, Sean Penn, Wendell Pierce and Kevin Spacey.

Performers for the night will include Rihanna, Sheryl Crow, Seal, the Neville Brothers, and Dr. John and friends.

The event, presented by the Hyatt Regency New Orleans with sponsor Google+, is the biggest single-night fundraiser in New Orleans history.

The charity gala will raise more money for Pitt's Make It Right Foundation, which so far has completed 75 ultra-modern homes in the Lower 9th Ward to replace those wiped away by the levee failures following Hurricane Katrina. The foundation since has expanded to Newark, N.J., and Kansas City, Mo., to provide sustainable housing for disabled veterans and disadvantaged communities.

The New Orleans event will feature a four-course dinner coordinated by chef John Besh and prepared by chefs Giada DeLaurentiis and Emeril Lagasse.

An afterparty will be hosted by comedian Aziz Ansari. Tickets for that event only are $150. The $1,000 ticket includes entrance to the afterparty. Individual VIP tickets are $2,500 and include admission to a VIP reception and the afterparty.
