Celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, Naomi Watts, Kathy Griffin and musician Wyclef Jean attended the fourth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic last weekend (5 June 11) in New York City to benefit Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation's Hope, Help & Rebuild Haiti (HHRH) mission.
Co-hosts of the event included Stephane Baschiera, president and CEO of Veuve Clicquot, Vanessa Kay, president of Veuve Clicquot USA, Polo superstar and Ralph Lauren model, Nacho Figueras, his wife Delfina Blaquier, and fashion designers Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan.
Grammy-winning musician Wyclef Jean, who performed impromptu during the pre-polo luncheon, spoke to JustLuxe about the fundraiser:
“There is a synergy going on with all of us who are helping Haiti, including Donna Karan, Sean Penn and others, where we want to see Haiti at a better place. The focus is how do we keep this drive and the partnerships between all of us tight, because the only way the country is going to move forward is through unity and strength…I am really proud of Donna and what she is doing."
