“Hamptons,NY” Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece Readers, Russell Simmons, Danny Simmons and The Rush Philanthropic Foundation is back for their 14th season in the Hamptons with their annual 14th ART FOR LIFE Hamptons Benefit. This year’s theme I am told is “Field of Dreams” and the Attire is dreamy hues of Peacock Green, Aquamarine& Amethyst. This will be the first year that the annual event will not be hosted at Russell Simmons estate in East Hampton. I am sure the event will be just as elegant as always. I am excited for this years entertainment Maxwell ,Estelle & Rapper Rick Rossflyer_1851_org

Celebrating the creative energy of our New York City Youth!

I look forward to attending this program every year not just because of the star power that attends but _dsc7349because they are doing some pretty fantastic work in the inner-city communities with art and music for students whose schools have eliminated these programs due to budget cutbacks. Russell & Danny continue their vital support to arts programs dedicated to serving urban children and emerging artist.
