We’ve all seen him portray Law & Order’s Detective Mike Logan, Carrie Bradshaw’s wealthy commitment-challenged beau on Sex and the City and a Chicago state attorney in CBS’ highly acclaimed The Good Wife. But Chris Noth, who has enjoyed quite an enduring presence on both the small and big screens, also spends a large portion of his free time working on behalf of the environment.
The well-known actor believes we’re currently in the midst of an ecological emergency “that should be the first thing on everybody’s list” of problems to address. Feeling that it’s everyone’s responsibility to chip in, become active and preserve our ailing planet, Noth has been a dedicated advocate of the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) for the better part of a decade. He chose to ally himself with the 25 year old grassroots organization because they “demand ethical action from government and big business.”
On Thursday, April 29, 2010, Noth will lend his star power to the Rainforest Action Network’s 25th Anniversary NYC Benefit at Bleecker Street’s Le Poisson Rouge. In addition to enjoying a festive evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live music performed by Grammy-nominated singer Tift Merritt, attendees will also get the opportunity to participate in an auction to win a dinner date with Sir Noth as well as two tickets to the world premiere of his upcoming flick, Sex and the City 2. For many ladies, the prospect of this alone is well worth the price of admission.
While the tickets are rather pricey at $250, they are graciously offering freebie admission to anyone who becomes a $25/month RAN supporter. And, of course, all cash raised during the event will help fund RAN’s future eco-projects. Sound like fun? Visit RAN.org to get your tickets.
