Rumer Willis Raised $12,000 For Charity with Date Offer


Hollywood actor Bruce Willis’ daughter helped to raise a sum of $12,000 (£7,500) for a gay and lesbian charity event. On Sunday, May 11, she offered up a date to a highest bidder.

The 25-year old made a spontaneous move at the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center’s 2014 An Evening with Women fundraiser. The ceremony was hosted by lesbian rocker and newlywed Linda Perry.

This year, the event helped to raise $600,000 (£375,000). It featured performances from actresses Milla Jovovich and Evan Rachel Wood.

The 38-year old Milla took the stage to sing three songs, including Patti Smith‘s Dancing Barefoot, and her original tunes I Pray You Down and Every Leaf.

Also on the guest list that evening was Michelle Rodriguez who handled the DJ booth, as well as Natasha Bedingfield, Margaret Cho, Sarah Gilbert and wife Linda Perry, and songwriter Sia.

For the good cause, Perry also reunited with her former band 4 non Blondes, for the first time after over 20 years.



Center CEO Lorri L. Jean addressed the assembled crowd and spoke of the Sultan of Brunei, who is urging to institute Sharia law in his country, which calls for the stoning to death of gays and adulterers and the public humiliation of women who’ve had abortions, and the months-long boycott of Dorchester Group-owned properties the Beverly Hills Hotel and Hotel Bel-Air, naming the monarch as “a monster.”

She also further encouraged patrons to take their business to other properties, citing The Hollywood Reporter’s recent report on the hotel’s Polo Lounge resembling “a ghost town.”

All of civilized society should reject this man.”
