Russell Simmons can motivate almost anyone to part with their money. But it means so much more when it’s for a good cause. For the past 13 years the hip-hop mogul has invited a few hundred of his friends for a Hamptons garden party to raise funds for his Rush Philanthropic Foundation via Art For Life.
This year attendees included CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, singer Melanie Fiona and record executives L.A Reid and Babyface, just to name a few.
