Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation has been there for children for over the past 20 years, and their annual Art for Life Benefit is no ordinary affair. If Russell Simmons takes something upon, it is in the stars to turn remarkable. And every year star-packed private gala surprises not only with the theme, but with fundraising that directly benefits arts education and gallery programs for tens of thousands of inner-city youth. This year, themed “Back to the Future” the Foundation raised $1.25 million, a notable sum aimed to support of emerging artists and significant exposure to the arts for youth across New York City.

The honorees of 2016 Arts for Life Benefit included some loud names in media industry and beyond: from award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien, CMO/CCO of BuzzFeed Frank Cooper III, to prominent TV personality Star Jones to name a few. Russell Simmons was true to himself in every detail of the evening: from inundating the room with floating white balloons for every $1000 donation made to artfully crafted cocktail offerings and all vegan menu. There’s nothing left to add except for the fact that the annual gala of the Foundation is one of the solid pillars, that keep the charity momentum going year after year.
