Super Saturdays ...

Swinging high at SUPER SATURDAY 9.

Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons hosted a Garden Party in East Hampton this past Saturday for the 7th annual Art For Life Seventh Heaven benefit honoring Donna Karan, Raymond J. McGuire and Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. Event Co-Chairs were Shahara Ahmad-Llewellyn and Haley and Jason Binn. Art Auction Chairs were Derrick Adams, Carmen Hammons, Danny Simmons, and Simon Watson.

Rush aims to present the highest quality arts education for New York City’s children, with a particular focus on underserved, under-recognized or disadvantaged populations. They believe the process of making art is an invaluable tool and that artmaking itself can be used as a vehicle to build bridges between communities. Rush offers a creative learning environment in which students can interact with artists, explore contemporary arts, and see the world through a variety of perspectives. Art provides a unique way for young people to learn, connect and communicate.

Rush believes in the vital importance of lifelong exposure to the arts, nurtured in early childhood and anchored in sustained, positive experiences throughout one’s life. While its primary emphasis is on the arts, Rush Philanthropic is committed to the general wellbeing of young people by considering a wide range of concerns. To learn more, visit:
