NEW YORK —Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons opened their East Hampton home Saturday and raised a record $1.1 million for the coffers of Art For Life.
The event, which topped last year’s $850,000, was sponsored by the Simmons’ charity, The Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Among the evening’s festivities was an auction for such packages as tickets to the Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera concert to a weekend in St. Barth’s, complete with a supply of Louis Vuitton luggage. The limited edition Baby Phat pink cell phone and a year’s worth of service from Nextel sold for $8,000.
