Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones Among Celebs Involved With May 7 Haiti Benefit.  The Haiti earthquake may have happened several months ago, but Americans have not forgotten about the island country’s woes. To further support the injured natives affected by the Jan. 12 natural disaster, the Hanger Ivan R. Sabel Foundation will be teaming up with the New York Dermatology Group to raise funds for Haitians who have lost limbs as a result of the earthquake. The philanthropic event, Rx Haiti Benefit, will be held at 6 p.m. ET May 7 at New York’s The Greenhouse.  David Colbert, MD of the NYDG addressed the event in a press release. “I came back from Haiti believing that one of the most important things we can do is to provide the prosthetics and related services that people who were injured will need to function again,” Colbert said. “If each of us does one little thing, it can add up to a very big thing, so we are raising money for a prosthetics clinic in Port-au-Prince that we know will make a big difference.” Numerous celebrities will be participating in the fundraiser, including Mick Jagger, L’Wren Scott, Rachel Weisz, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michelle Williams, Sienna Miller, Jude Law, Helmut Lang, John Currin, Rachel Feinstein, Naomi Watts, Zac Posen, Christopher Niquet, Edie Falco, Margery and Ted Mayer, and EJ Camp. The night will begin with a VIP reception at $750 per person, followed by a cocktail party and the Rx Haiti auction.Among the items up for bid are designer dresses, jewelry, guitars signed by Jagger and the rest of the Rolling Stones, a luxury Yachts of Seabourn cruise and many other materials donated by musical artists, fashion designers and other personalities. Ivan Sabel, chairman of the Hanger Ivan R. Sabel Foundation, thanked everyone involved with the benefit. “Their contributions will directly impact the lives of many Haitian amputees in need,” he said. “Together, we will improve human mobility in Haiti through sustainable clinical care, training, education, and supplies.”
