The Rainforest Foundation's An Evening of Blue-eyed Soul benefit at the Supper Club was an elegant affair. The centerpieces consisted of white gardenias surrounded by pittosporum greens and small crystal table lamps, all from Zeze Flowers. The Supper Club's bright blue tablecloths matched the evening's theme.

Phylicia Rashad and Ben Vereen hosted the event, which featured performances by 12 black Broadway singers and three opera singers (known as Three Mo' Tenors). The evening's unique theme had black performers performing blue-eyed soul music--R&B-inspired music written and performed by white artists. (When they weren't onstage singing and dancing to the choreography of Ken Roberson, performers munched on catering from Nicholas Giusti Catering backstage.)

Founded by Sting and wife Trudie Styler, the Rainforest Foundation was established to preserve the indigenous rights of native forest peoples who inhabit the rainforests of Latin America. Monday's event, organized by Lisa Stamm, chief development officer for the foundation, was attended by more than 330 guests, and raised $425,000 for the foundation.
