Russell Simmons*Saturday night many celebrities were in attendance at Russell Simmons’ 14th annual Art For Life Gala: “A Field of Dreams” in the Hamptons

The star-studded event took place at Fairview Farms in Bridgehampton and raised more than $1.5 million. The money will go towards establishing art programs for inner city youth.

Soledad O’Brien was the co-host of the evening, which housed a list of celebs including Anthony Anderson, Melanie Fiona, Al Sharpton, Tichina Arnold, Star Jones, Angela Simmons, Michael Strahan and his fiance, Nicole Murphy.

A distinguished group of luminaries and supporters were honored at the event. Tyler Perry and Walter Mosely, amongst others, were saluted for their dedication and financial contributions towards keeping the arts alive.

After dinner, there were live musical performances by Estelle, Rick Ross and Maxwell.
