Alec Baldwin, Ina Garten Help Raise $600K For Conservation Charity

Last weekend’s “Barefoot under the Stars” fundraiser, hosted by chef Ina Garten (aka The Barefoot Contessa) and special guested by Alec Baldwin, was a giant success – raising over $600,000 for the charity “Group for the East End.”

The environmental protection organization works to conserve and restore habitats along eastern Long Island through education, citizen action and professional advocacy. According to Hamptons.com, Baldwin was quick to inject a bit of humor into the evening’s festivities.

Once in the tent, man of the evening Baldwin addressed the audience, recounting an anecdote of an intimate dinner he attended at the Barefoot Contessa’s “excruciatingly exquisite home.” With Ina’s name on the event masthead, he quipped, “we could serve you a Power Bar and a water, and you’d all say that was the best meal of my life.” The crowd offered riotous laughter and a slew of approving applause for Garten, the archetypal “hostess with the most-ess.”

The NY Times “Nocturnalist” also recounted an amusing evening with the 53-year-old actor – who also apparently suffers from chronic Lyme disease.

“Mr. Baldwin was unfailingly polite — he has to be, he said. When he hasn’t felt like shaking 1,000 hands, slighted fans have begun angry Twitter campaigns against him. Mr. Baldwin was a delight, a refreshing change from the press-release-spouting animatrons many of his peers become around Nocturnalist.”

Baldwin can be seen next year in the highly-anticipated movie version of the Broadway musical “Rock of Ages”.

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
