Sean Penn & Friends Raise 4 Million For Haiti

This past weekend Hollywood came together to support Sean Penn and his J/P Haitian Relief Organization at the 2nd Annual Help Haiti Home Gala, presented by Giorgio Armani in LA. Approximately $4 million was raised. In a weekend of primarily film and TV self-celebrations, Sean Penn remains committed to Haiti — and Hollywood and its A-list moguls and stars are standing with him to shine a light and raise much needed funds.

“A lot of other groups have come and gone, but Sean remains,” said Anderson Cooper.

J/P Haitian Relief Organization is dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. Following the tragic earthquake of 2010 J/P HRO began working immediately to make an impact in Haiti.  J/P HRO works with both government and non-governmental agencies to deliver immediate results where the need is greatest.

Highlights of the evening: Leonardo DiCaprio got in a bidding war with billionaire Mickey Gooch during the auction. They ultimately agreed to share the winning prize of spending a day with President Bill Clinton. The lot went for $400,000. 

Talent in attendance included Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Evans, Minka Kelly, Jon Bon Jovi, Richard Gere, Mel Gibson, Melanie Griffith, Eva Longoria and more.
