Bette Midler will once again present a special Halloween event to benefit her New York Restoration Project (NYRP).
Hulaween is NYRP’s annual masquerade ball with a Hawaiian twist in honor of Bette’s home state, attended by a star-studded crowd of nearly 1,000 costumed guests.
The event features special guest Al Gore, a musical performance by Blondie, master of ceremonies Judy Gold, costume judge Michael Kors, an auction with Sotheby’s Hugh Hildesley to support the work of NYRP, and dinner created by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
2012’s Hulaween will honor Amy Goldman Fowler and Cary Fowler with the annual “Wind Beneath My Wings” Leadership Award. The gala has a French theme and will feature a French menu, can-can dancers, and French-themed decor and costumes.
The event takes place at the Waldorf-Astoria, 301 Park Avenue, New York City on October 31. Find out more here.
