Jeffrey Fashion Cares, the annual fund-raiser thrown by Jeffrey Kalinsky, will honor Jordan Roth at this year’s benefit.
Now in its 16th year, the annual event will be held on Wednesday, April 10, at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. The evening aims to raise awareness surrounding the people who live with HIV and AIDS, support LGBTQ youth and challenge discrimination against the LGBTQ community. Over the past 15 years of Jeffrey Fashion Cares’ existence, the event has raised a cumulative $ 6 million to $ 7 million as of 2018.
President of the Jujamcyn Theaters Jordan Roth is slated to receive the Jeffrey Fashion Cares Community Leadership Award. His theaters have been integral in telling queer stories by hosting productions like “Kinky Boots” and “Falsettos.” He also produced “Angels in America,” and received a Tony Award for it.
Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy will emcee. The athlete, who won the silver medal in slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, was one of two openly gay American competitors who walked in the Winter Olympics opening ceremony — the other, figure skater Adam Rippon. Kenworthy has yet another connection to the entertainment world: He has a role in the

‘TIS THE SEASON: More than halfway to its goal of collecting 125,000 donated coats, this year’s annual New York Cares Coat Drive has less than a week to go.
New Yorkers can drop off coats at multiple locations including the group’s West 31st Street warehouse, any New York Police Department precinct, all Queens library branches and Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station through Dec. 31. Those who don’t have jackets to give can text “coat” to 41444 to donate money that will be used by the nonprofit to buy and deliver coats. The city has at least 1.7 million people living below the poverty line including 60,000 who are without permanent housing, according to a New York Cares spokeswoman.
The group has collected and donated 1.8 million coats to New Yorkers in need over the past 29 years. This year’s requests from shelters, social service agencies and schools is an increase compared to last year’s tally of 109,000 coats.
Another local group, The Fashion Foundation, recently wrapped up another charitable initiative. Founder Amanda Munz helped to brighten the holidays for 100 students in three different Brooklyn schools by arranging for each of them to receive a complementary gift-laden backpack.

The decision whether or not your company should be active in a charitable way can be a complicated or simple one. It does not take a lot to support local or national charity in some way (even a couple hundred or thousand dollars a year), but it does take real dedication to a social mission to be consistently donating more or doing large sponsorships.

Roseville, MN—Reeling in horror as she stopped by their table yet again to check on how their meals were tasting and to cheerfully ask if she could get them anything else, a party of diners at a local Buffalo Wild Wings confirmed to reporters Thursday that terrifying server Jane Gember appeared to genuinely care about their dining experience. “When I couldn’t decide which Sam Adams draft beer I wanted, she offered to bring me samples of each—that’s when the whole table realized we were dealing with a completely unhinged individual,” said visibly petrified patron Abby Cowans, who described the awful moment when a broadly smiling Gember leaned right in to inquire whether Cowans enjoyed the Potato Wedges she had recommended to pair with her Chicken Buffalito. “I can feel my heart stop every time she comes over to our table and tells us how she’s …
During the lead up to Meek Mill‘s return volley to Drake, Funkmaster Flex continued his campaign of questioning the Canadian superstar’s bar credibility. Flex leaked three more reference tracks and the only people who seemed to care are those who cape for Meek or have some hurt feelings over Drizzy being miles ahead in this, ahem, battle.
Flex started his exposure wave after leaking a reference track featuring alleged ghostwriter Quentin Miller last week with the track “10 Bands,” which got folks whispering a bit louder about Meek’s allegations. Flex, in a bid to lend credence to Meek’s claims, added a few more reference tracks to his Soundcloud page Thursday night.
The tracks “Used To,” “Know Yourself,” and “R.I.C.O.” were all posted and curiously pulled from Flex’s Soundcloud in the hours since they were posted. However, swift YouTube users were able to snag the reference tracks and posted them up.
While there was some chatter to the newer reference tracks getting leaked online, along with Flex tweeting like a madman, largely nobody cared and just wanted Meek to drop a hot response. Word on the street is that it’s still Drake far ahead in the lead while Meek is licking his wounds and copping major pleas on social media in the aftermath.
Check out Funkmaster Flex’s leaked If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late reference tracks allegedly featuring Quentin Miller below and on the following pages.

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper
“Entourage” (Warner Brothers)
“Entourage” is a movie made for the fans of the popular HBO series of the same name. For those, like me, who never saw an episode this is a movie full of mystery. What is the basis for the plot; who are these actors; and more than that who are these characters and why should audiences care about them. I didn’t know them going in and I didn’t know or care about them as I was leaving.
As far as I can gather Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) is a young actor who has had some success in Hollywood. He now lives and works in Hollywood and has brought some of his good pals from back east to town with him. These include Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and his brother Johnny (Kevin Dillon). They make up his entourage. Ari (Jeremy Piven) is the man who discovered him and he is now running a Hollywood studio and wants Vincent to star in his next big movie.
Vincent agrees as long as he can direct the film and Eric can produce it. Johnny must also have a good role in the movie while Turtle is along for the ride. Larsen McCredle (Billy Bob Thornton) and his son Travis (Haley Joel Osment) are the money men behind the film. When the film goes over budget Ari has to try to wheedle some more money from McCredle.
While all of this is going on the audience gets a look at what goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood. It basically looks like Beach Party Bingo with bikinied girls making up most of the cast. To make it authentic people/actors such as Liam Neeson, Kelsey Grammer, Mark Rubin, Gary Busey, Bob Saget and Jon Favreau pop up for a quick hello.
The subplots involve Turtle trying to get a date with Rhonda Rousey. Eric is coping with possibly two pregnancies. Johnny is trying to be more than a joke as an actor. And Ari is trying to control his anger. All four don’t add up to a smidgen of something interesting.
Grenier is one of the least charismatic actors I have seen on screen since Jake Gyllenhaal tromped through “The Prince of Persia”. Dillon is totally unlikeable as Johnny but that’s okay because I think he was intended to be unlikeable. Billy Bob is once more playing what we think of as “the Billy Bob Thornton” character, while Osment looks like he would enjoy seeing some “dead people” if that would liven things up.
The only actor to make a good impression is Piven as Ari Gold. He is in totally manic mood and it gives the film the little energy it has. I would happily go see a movie about Ari Gold if they would leave all those other characters at home.
The movie is rated R for profanity and nudity.
The fans of the TV series must have been a loud group because they got a slick movie made that takes up supposedly where the series left off. Here’s to their success in getting it done. But now that it is made, how are you going to sell it to the rest of the country?
I scored “Entourage” a crowded 4 out of 10.
