Russell Simmons and Deepak Chopra took to the mic at a Moroccan Oil and Hamptons Magazine event to raise awareness for Life Camp, speaking out about gun violence and their wishes for all people to find their path to spirituality to make the world a better place. Guests including Congressman Meeks, Malik Yoba (Alphas) and Salt from Salt & Pepper listened to their inspirational speeches while dining on fare from Beaumarchais A La Plage. Moroccanoil Co-Founder Carmen Tal supported the organization by donating a $10,000 check to Life Camp, and Russell Simmons followed suit by purchasing $3,000 worth of Life Camp bracelets. All proceeds went directly to the charity.
