Winfrey-Lauren conversation raises $7 million for charities
When Ralph Lauren sat down for a little chat Monday night with Oprah Winfrey, they picked up a discussion they started on TV back in the spring, when the fashion designer helped close out Miss Winfrey’s long-running talk show with an exclusive peek inside his Colorado estate.
But this time, their talk about Mr. Lauren’s life, career and commitment to cancer causes was at Lincoln Center in front of a sold-out crowd of arts patrons and a celebrity guest list that included Michael J. Fox, Brian Williams, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Wintour, Martha Stewart and Naomi Watts, the Associated Press reports.
The conversation raised more than $7 million for Mr. Lauren’s cancer care center in East Harlem and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
In a pre-show interview, Mr. Lauren said he wanted to do this because he believes in the causes.
“I’ve been doing what I’m doing a long time, and I’m here to give back what I can,” he said.
He said he can’t remember the first time he met Miss Winfrey but spent a long time with her when she first launched her magazine - and that formed a connection.
“I once found myself talking to Oprah in my car for an hour,” he said. “Whenever I see her it’s like I just saw her. That’s a real connection.”
Bret Michaels sprucing up hospital’s waiting room
A Phoenix hospital is injecting a little Poison into families waiting for sick loved ones, thanks to a donation from 1980s hair band singer Bret Michaels.
The Poison frontman plans to announce Thursday that he is donating TVs and sound systems for a waiting room at the St. Joseph’s Barrow Neurological Institute, where he was treated in April 2010 for a brain hemorrhage. The equipment will allow families to relax and listen to music.
He also was treated at the hospital earlier this year for a procedure to fix a hole in his heart. Doctors discovered the hole when they treated him for the brain hemorrhage.
