Last night Brad Pitt hosted a local event in New Orleans to raise money to build more of his energy efficient homes in the 9th Ward of New Orleans. In case you don’t know Mr. Pitt stepped forward after Hurricane Katrina and six years later is still engaged in this project through his Make It Right organization.
This is the list of who attended, Major Landrieu, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Ellen DeGeneres, Randy Jackson, Harrison Ford, Mark Ruffalo, Wendell Pierce, Minka Kelly, Camryn Manheim, Ron Moss, Dr. John, Sean Penn, Aziz Ansari, Morgan Freeman, Snoop Dog, Kayne West, Allan Toussaint and Rihanna.
The crowd went wild when Drew Brees came in even with all those heavy hitters from the entertainment world. Where else except an awards show can you get this type of group together?
The review of the evening appeared in the Gambit and you can feel the energy and excitement about living in New Orleans and being local in this article.
