Chris Noth Hosts Eco Rock Fundraiser at Cutting Room NYC for Rainforest Action Network

| June 24, 2014 | Reply

Chris Noth hosted Eco Rock last week at Cutting Room NYC to support the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), and Bella NYC Magazine was amongst the invites. Press lined the red carpet to capture the “The Good Wife” star himself, cast members Julianna Margulies and Dallas Roberts. But Executive Director of RAN, Lindsey Allen….made the most elegant entrance in a black dress adorned with lace.

Most sought to get film and TV gossip from Chris Noth: but he was quick to keep focus on Eco Rock, Lindsey Allen, the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) auction and honoree of the evening Josh Mailman (a lifelong supporter of RAN). Even though we love to think of Chris Noth as “Mr. Big”, there is an even sexier side to him. Listen to Noth speak about RAN, the depletion of our coral systems and ensuring a better world for our children to thrive: and his passion will turn you onto getting involved. He’s been a “Big” deal in the Rainforest Action Network since 1991. Through education, grass roots action, and celebrity partnerships: RAN and supporters like Chris Noth, Damon Torres and last year’s Eco Rock Co-host Whoopi Goldberg… play a huge role in pressuring “Big” companies to adopt environmental ethics into their bottom line. Home Depot, Citi Group, General Mills and Disney have already followed suit. With the help of every Bella… more can be inspired to do the same.

Although Chris Noth is one of Bella’s favorite men, Lindsey Allen is quickly becoming one of our favorite women to watch: and not just because she is beautiful. As Executive Director of RAN, Allen is the brains behind this powerful organization! Her introductory speech at Eco Rock, offered clever anecdotes that connected the audience with RAN’s unique style of nonviolent direct action, grass root methods and passion. My favorite line Lindsey Allen delivered:

“The Jungle Book can no longer be printed on the Jungle.” –Lindsey Allen

Bella is all about strong women and making their mark in the world: Lindsey Allen and the Rainforest Action Network are striving to preserve that world. Eco Rock at Cutting Room is another savvy way RAN is making their mission happen. Wall Street Journal has dubbed RAN as one of the best “environmental agitators”, but tonight they commanded the attention of some of New York’s best to make financial contributions.  All proceeds went directly to the Rainforest Action Network.

Chris Noth and Holt McCallany (the new face of Bastille French Whisky), hosted the auction live on the Cutting Room stage. The two made for great comedy and warmed the audience into making some great bids on exclusive vacations to upstate New York, Vegas and Bali. The evening may have been filled with celebs, sustainable food, signature Eco Rock Cocktails made with BASTILLE 1789: but Chris Noth’s wife Tara Wilson momentarily stole the show… when she made the highest bid on the Bali trip. Chris Noth responded in an amused and loving manner:

“Honey, we are gonna talk later.” –Chris Noth

Eco Rock finished out the evening with performances by Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers and Gov’t Mule, and ended with comedian Jim Gaffigan. Guest left with inspirational messages by both the Rainforest Action Network and Chris Noth. Eco Friendly Gift Bags served as reminders to stay involved in maintaining the best world possible for the next generation. Shoeholics, American Crew and Cosmo Girl were amongst the eco-friendly goodies.

And of course Bella NYC Magazine’s, Editor-In-Chief Courtenay Cooper Hall and yours truly Boston Scarlette, snagged a photo with the infamous Chris Noth, now widley known for his philanthropic role with Rainforest Action Network.
