What are you doing now? We're watching live streaming video of models playing ping pong at SPiN, the Manhattan ping pong club co-owned by Susan Sarandon and her rumored boytoy, Jonathan Bricklin. Yep, supermodels are playing ping pong for Haiti.
First of all: It is good to raise money for Haiti. So, the "worst" Haiti fundraiser is a relative thing. For example, the worst Haiti fundraiser is way better than even the best case of food poisoning. In the great universal scale of justice, the worst Haiti fundraiser is maybe equivalent to a mediocre grilled cheese sandwich.
But still: Here, via CityFile, is the press release for the event, which is apparently called "Models Play Ping Pong for Haiti":
Models Play Ping Pong for Haiti
Modelinia will be airing a livestream video from their Haiti Relief Foundraiser event tonight at SPiN New York from 9:30pm-10:30pm, hosted by supermodel Veronica Webb. The livestream will include interviews with celebrity guests including Susan Sarandon, Selita Ebanks, Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Esposito, Judah Friedlander, Wyclef Jean and Hilary Rhoda; footage of models and guests playing ping-pong; the silent auction and general atmosphere of this fashionable fundraising event.
Wyclef just can't stay away from questionable charity operations.
Anyway, watch the livestream at Modelinia and see if you can spot Susan Sarandon and Jonathan Bricklin smooching for Haiti.
