(NEW YORK) Though the fast-approaching New York Fashion Week has gotten many a chicster temporarily preoccupied, the tragedy in Haiti has not been forgotten by the fashion set. On Monday, February 8, Andre Harrell, Mary J. Blige, Donna Karan, and André Balazs will host Haiti Hope Help & Relief, a benefit directly supporting Habitat for Humanity, Partners in Health, and Yele Haiti. Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Carolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Daphne Guinness, Mos Def, Tory Burch, Amy Sacco, Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons, Ross Bleckner, Q-Tip, and Vito Schnabel are just a few of the packs of bold-face names lending their support to the event, which will take place at Karan’s Urban Zen Center. Blige will perform at the dinner, with Soledad O’Brien serving as the night’s emcee, Wyclef Jean giving the keynote speech, and Goldberg hosting the live auction.

Of course, the do-gooding will go on long after the dinner ends, with The Relief Party on top of the Standard directly afterward (Prabal Gurung, Chris Benz, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais are among the relief party committee members). Wyclef Jean will take the stage once again at the fête with a midnight performance, so pick up your tickets now!
