RPAF Staff and Board Host a Benefit Dinner Party and Arts Day for Youth, March 12th 2004.  This two-part event consisted of an intimate dinner for thirty guests, and an after party. Both events were held at Tsunami in West Palm Beach. In addition to Rush Philanthropic, other beneficiaries included two local Palm Beach Charities: the Armory Art Center and Music Outreach Entertainment.

This event was made possible by the generosity and hard work of board member Shamin Abas and her husband Frank. In addition to Shamin and Frank, the event was co-hosted by Robert Johnson, Al and Nancy Malnik, Joseph Simmons, Donald Trump, and Russell and Kimora. The evening provided a perfect, intimate setting for friends of Rush to spend time together, and enjoy some warm weather. Guests included Phyllis Hollis, Brett Ratner, Morris and Jaci Reid, David Rosenberg, Roberta Shields, Ben Vereen, and Serena Williams, among others.

The following day, Russell and Rev. Run visited the kids from both organizations at an arts day held at the the Armory Arts Center. As you might imagine, the young people were all too excited to spend time with them. Shamin, Phyllis, and RPAF staff were all on hand to meet the youth and help them with art making.
