It was definitely a scary 48 hours for the inhabitants of New York.
But now that Hurricane Sandy has moved away from the East Coast, it's back to business for most New Yorkers, including Bette Midler. The veteran actress and singer continued her life as usual and celebrated her yearly extravagant celebrity 'Hulaween' bash on Wednesdaynight in the storm-struck city.
Despite the fact that Lower Manhattan is still without power, Bette managed to find a venue uptown which did have electricity: The Waldorf Astoria hotel.
And as the annual bash is held in honour of her charity Bette Midler's New York Restoration Project which tries to create more green space in New York, it is no wonder that the Rose singer was so keen to carry on with the party, especially as the funds raised with the bash could be used to help restore the city after the storm..
Here's my question? Why no mention of how much $$$ they raised? Which charity will get the money? And the best question yet...why not skip the costumes, food, etc and donate the total amount of money that you ALL had earmarked for the party?
