Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are heading for the Hamptons but it’s not for a weekend of fun in the sun. The couple are hosting a dinner of about 50 people this Saturday night to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
According to an Usmagazine.com source, the expectation is that the guests will make an extremely large financial commitment to the project.
The dinner will take place at the home of producer Jane Rosenthal and her husband Craig Hatkoff.
Jolie, 32, and Rosenthal are friendly from working together on The Good Shepherd, which Rosenthal produced. Jolie also premiered her documentary, A Place in Time, at the Tribeca Film Festival, which Rosenthal helped co-found with Robert De Niro.
The couple is said to be traveling in and out by helicopter and not staying the weekend.
The invitation reads:
Nearly two years after Hurricane Katrina, residents of the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans are still struggling to rebuild. Brad Pitt started the “Make it Right” project after he visited the devastated area. He hopes to preserve the unique culture and spirit of the Ninth Ward by rebuilding a neighborhood inspired by safe and sustainable “green” homes in one of the hardest hit communities in Louisiana.
Pitt, 43, recently sat down with the Today show’s Ann Curry to discuss his involvement with the Global Green USA project, which is building zero energy, affordable housing for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
