angelinajoliebradpittfamily-ok.jpgAfter last week’s tour and subsequent media plugs for his involvement in helping build a greener New Orleans, Brad Pitt took the family and headed up to the Hamptons on Long Island for a little fundraising.Before the wining and dining, however, the fam hit NYC for some tourism and hot pretzels. Yum. Which brings me to dinner. In attendance were such folks as Ellen Barkin, Jimmy Buffet and Christie Brinkley; to whom Pitt delivered a speech about his cause and why donations are important to making it realized. Theevent was held at the house of Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff, co-founders of the popular Tribeca Film Festival. 

No word yet on how much money was raised for Pitt’s Make It Right project, but with people like Buffet in attendance, there’s little doubt that New Orleans Ninth Ward will remain without green properties for long.  In a recent interview with NBC’s Ann Curry, Pitt had this to say about the situation, “The misconception is that it was nature. But this is manmade – decades and decades of erroneous engineering moves and really, really bad, bad irresponsible moves that I believe government has a responsibility to make right.”
