September 30, 2023 (NEW YORK CITY) – One group of philanthropists just checked “private dinner party with George Clooney” off their bucket list. Last Tuesday, September 26, Charitybuzz welcomed the Academy Award winner and a handful of guests to a unique, intimate event.
The exclusive “Good Evening” featured craft cocktails, gourmet dinner and captivating conversation. Hosted by Charitybuzz’s private members’ club, Charitybuzz Access, the event raised funds for the Clooney Foundation for Justice, which wages justice for survivors of human rights abuses around the world.
“Amal and I started the Clooney Foundation for Justice because we believe in creating a world where human rights are protected and no one is above the law,” said George Clooney. “We know that so many people not only agree with us on that, but also want to actively support and be a part of this work. This Charitybuzz dinner gave people the opportunity to do just that.”
Charitybuzz created the “Good Evening” dinner series as part of a new initiative to host its own highly exclusive events with celebrity partners and luminaries, in addition to continuing to offer access to other experiences.
“Charitybuzz is thrilled to have built such a powerful community of fun-loving philanthropists enabling us to raise hundreds of thousands in support of this urgent, global cause,” said Head of Charitybuzz Access Ramona Brodsky. “George and Amal are undertaking vital work on behalf of all of us, and are the perfect team to do so. We are honored to help them.”
Along with Clooney, “Good Evening” participants have included and will include Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, the cast of Billions, and Steve Carell and the cast of The Office.
As the preeminent destination for once-in-a-lifetime experiences that give back, Charitybuzz has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for charities to-date. In addition to the Charitybuzz Access private members’ club, the marketplace offers online auctions, buy-now shopping, donate-to-win sweepstakes, and a corporate hospitality program.
