Alicia Keys Will Host Black Ball
Alicia Keys wants your money. Well, she wants it to go to Keep a Child Alive, at least. She is co-hosting the annual fundraiser with supermodel Iman, the Black Ball.
From Ticketmaster, where a ticket costs either $250 or $500:
This very special evening will take place at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Thursday, November 9. The evening will entail a cocktail hour, seated dinner, photo exhibit and silent auction. The hallmark of the night will be extraordinary live performances by Alicia Keys, David Bowie, Angelique Kidjo, and more exciting artists.
According to StarPulse, part of the fundraising will include auctioning of photographs of Elijah Wood, Mischa Barton, Gwyneth Paltrow and Heidi Klum.
Keep a Child Alive is an “urgent response to the AIDS pandemic ravaging Africa”. AIDS is 25 years old this year, and has already killed 25 million. Life-saving drugs are available, but less than 5% of Africans have access to them. Keys discussed the organization with Oprah last week during the (RED) show, and we live-blogged it.
