Russell Simmons Raises Over $2 Million During “Art For Life” Fundraiser

(AllHipHop News) Mogul/philanthropist Russell Simmons hosted his annual Art For Life fundraising gala in The Hamptons yesterday (July 28).

Singer Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon were the guest of honor during Art For Life, which was hosted at Simmons’ estate in The Hamptons.

Celebrities like Grant Hill and wife Tamia, Kevin Liles, Anita Baker, Rocsi Diaz and others attended the event.

The 13th annual event, which was hosted by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, raised almost $2 million for charity.

Art For Life was co-sponsored by Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, which was founded in 1995 by Russell, Danny and Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons.

The non-profit is dedicated to “providing inner-city youth with significant arts exposure and access to the arts.”
