Empire State Building to glow green on May 8th in honor of Rainforest Foundation Fund Carnegie Hall Benefit and Rainforest Awareness Month 2008!
It's Rainforest Awareness Month and Jessica is kickin' it telling you about her trip to the Brazilian Amazon and interviewing John Nevado, President of Nevado Roses Ecuador just in time for Mother's Day (*wink* pamper mom and mama earth with our gift guide).
The star-studded Rainforest Foundation Fund Benefit Concert & Gala is tomorrow night and if you weren't fortunate enough to bid your way into winning exclusive access to the event, there is still time to purchase Gala and concert tickets. Billy Joel, James Taylor, Sting, Brian Wilson, Chris Botti, Feist, celebrated French operatic tenor Roberto Alagna, cellist Natalie Clein plus special musical family members including Alexa Ray Joel, CoCo Sumner, Ben Taylor, Sally Taylor, along with many more special guests will perform one night only on behalf of the Rainforest Foundation Fund.To celebrate the achievements of The Rainforest Foundation Fund and to raise awareness of its mission, Mayor Bloomberg's office has issued a proclamation declaring the month of May "Rainforest Awareness Month," while Crate and Barrel's Madison Avenue store windows have been decorated to reflect inspiring success stories from the world's rainforests. Also, the Empire State Building will glow green in tribute on the evening of the benefit. The makers of Smart Car have donated the Passion Cabriolet, autographed by all of this year's participating artists -- one of the many unique featured items offered in the evening's live auction.
If you want to show lots of love for the rainforest, Gala tickets are still available for purchase. Also, concert-only tickets from $400-$150 are available through Carnegie Hall Box Office: 212-247-7800
