Scott Harrison's Annual Charity: Ball is always a hot ticket each December. And, its not just because Adrian Grenier is host. His Charity: Water organization has quickly become the hip fundraiser to support, mostly because of its most simplistic vision: providing the thing that everyone in the world deserves....water. This year, GofG hopes to help Scott's mission by giving away 2 Tickets to the Fundraiser Gala on December 13th to one lucky newsletter subscriber [Sign up now!] as well as encouraging our readers (you!) to purchase their own tickets at: www.charitywater.org/charityball.
An evening to benefit freshwater projects in developing countries.
December 13: Adrian Grenier hosts the fifth annual charity: ball.
Almost a billion people don't have access to clean water. Join non-profit charity: water at our annual gala to help change that.
You'll learn about the water crisis and how we're fighting it. You'll be hosted by Entourage's Adrian Grenier, sip African-infused drinks and experience a surprise musical guest. Immersed in galleries of photography, video and installations; you'll have plenty of chances to join our mission to bring clean water to people in need. The room will move to the sounds of DJ Jus-Ske and a surprise musical performer, while sipping libations by Alex Ott and tasting culinary sensations from New York hotspot, Betel. Last year’s charity: ball raised more than $1.8 million in one evening, proving that one night on the town can make a real impact.
charity: ball 2010 is Monday, December 13, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. Join us!
