Giorgio Armani, third time with Penn’s Haitian Relief Organization
GIORGIO ARMANI AND SEAN PENN PARTNERED FOR THE THIRD TIME TO SUPPORT PENN’S HAITIAN RELIEF ORGANIZATION WITH A PRIVATE CHARITY DINNER AND AUCTION IN LOS ANGELES
Giorgio Armani is pleased to announce that he rejoined forces with longtime friend, award-winning actor and humanitarian Sean Penn in a continuation of the year-long initiative in support of J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO). On January 12th, the collaboration relocated to the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills for a charity dinner and auction chaired by Sean Penn, Bryan Lourd and Giorgio Armani. The event was also sponsored by NRG Energy Company. The evening, hosted by news anchor and television host Anderson Cooper, included a performance by Eddie Vedder.
The partnership, launched during the Cannes Film Festival last May, was followed by an event during Rome Film Festival. Another highlight of the collaboration has been an exclusive charity campaign bringing together Armani and Penn in a media drumbeat for global support of Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
J/P HRO is dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. Following the devastating earthquake of 2010 J/P HRO began working immediately on the ground to make an impact in Haiti. Working with both government and non-governmental agencies to deliver immediate results where the need is greatest J/P HRO has become a leader in Haiti across multiple sectors working to improve living conditions providing medical services, education and community enrichment programs, new housing construction and neighborhood redevelopment. The goal of J/P HRO is to help lift the nation of Haiti out of poverty and give the Haitian people a better life. More information can be found atwww.jphro.org
