Julianne Moore hosted a sunset cocktail night on Mill Pond in Water Mill last Saturday to benefit the Children’s Health Fund. The Oscar-nominated actress, who has a house in Montauk, helped raise more than $140,000 for the children’s health organization.
Ovation Travel’s Paul and Lisa Metselaar graciously donated the use of their Hamptons home to hold the benefit’s late night bash.
Other notables in attendance included New York Senator Chuck Schumer, Beach magazine editor Cristina Cuomo, fashion designer Valentina Kova, Bloomberg News anchor Gigi Stone, designer Christopher Fischer and Giorgio Armani’s Graziano de Boni, among others.
Moore’s 12-year-old daughter Liv Freundlich was also spotted at the event alongside her famous mom.
As night set in and the supermoon rose, guests had the opportunity to tour a Children’s Health Fund Mobile Medical Clinic. A complete “doctor’s office on wheels,” the mobile clinic is one of 50 that provide underserved children across the country with health care.
A live auction offered guests a chance to win such tempting goodies as a custom version of the Valentina Kova outfit Moore wore and an exotic vacation to the Maldives, as well as luxurious stays in Maui and St. Martin with private air travel.
The auction continues on charitybuzz.com, where charitable Hamptonites can bid for fabulous lots, including various vacation hotspot getaways and a luxurious Italian Bulgari Icona handbag.
Those inspired by Moore, can also donate at the Children’s Health Fund website, childrenshealthfund.org.
