A few years ago, I had the privilege of attending Art of Life Gala (East Hampton) courtesy of Vibe Magazine and it was the most incredible act of philanthropy I had ever witnessed by African-Americans. Sponsored by Rush Philanthropic this celebrity-studded event is designed to raise money for Rush's various programs; there is also a second Art for Life held in Miami, Florida. Though I am most certain that my invitation got lost in the mail, I was not able to cover the event in person. Listed below are some pictures from last weekend's soiree so please enjoy. Find an organization in which you can perform generous acts of philanthropy; if not monetarily then a huge currency is your time.
