Last Thursday, June 10, 2010 Billabong held their 4th annual Design For Humanity benefit on the legendary New York Street Backlot at Paramount Studios in Hollywood (USA). The party was a blast and a total success! Some of the celebrity attendants at this year’s event included Donavon Frankenreiter, Danny Kass, Tom Curren and Keala Kennelly, to name but a few.
The sold out fashion-music-art block party was a blow out with Legendary electroclash duo FISCHERSPOONER and “It” girl Kid Sister performing after a runway fashion show.
The Seth Carmichael Gallery sponsored a pop up gallery on the lot and sold a dozen pieces through silent auction to benefit the charity. The artwork will continue to be available for purchase. Go to designforhumanity.com for more info.
100% of this year’s ticket sales and proceeds from art show and product collaboration auction sales will be donated to Invisible Children, an organization raising awareness and funds for families affected by the long-standing war in Uganda, Africa. Invisible Children rebuilds schools devastated by war, benefiting over 8,400 Ugandan youth in the areas of water and sanitation, books and equipment, refurbishment of structures, teacher support, and technology and power. So far over $75,000 was raised from the event with thousands more expected from the art and bikini collaboration auctions which will be made available online.
