Nothing says the holidays quite like a festive bash, especially when it’s aimed at helping those in need.
Russell Simmons is preparing for his 17th annual St. Barths holiday party. This year, he’s getting a little help from supermodel Alina Baikova, who will co-host the event.
Back in October, Russell initially decided not to do the annual bash but was persuaded by the opportunity to turn it into a fundraiser for The Heart Fund, a foundation that works in Africa to save the lives of children suffering from heart disease.
Thank you to DOUGLAS CHABBOTT FOR HELPING TO FUND AND ORGANIZE THIS EVENT. WE HAVE HAD AMAZING PARTIES YEAR AFTER YEAR MAYBE WE CAN GIVE SOMETHING TO THE LESS FORTUNATE. DJ MOS. WILL BE THE DJ. I decided in October that I didn't want to do my annual St Barts party. My partner, Rosenberg, is having a baby and he's not coming so I was off the hook. Until I remembered that last year there was an amazing launch party held by their ambassador and real hard working supporter, @alina_baikova. I generally never give a party unless I can raise something for underserved people. Now, Doug Chabbott, who has run the party as a kid and is now a very successful adult, has stepped in for 1/2 the overhead. Now, my 17th annual party in St Barts will be turned into a fundraiser for the amazing "Heart Fund" that works in Africa.

Russell shared his excitement about the upcoming bash on Instagram, writing: “We have had amazing parties year after year maybe we can give something to the less fortunate. DJ Mos. will be the DJ.”
It all goes down on December 28 and this is bound to be one for the books. Most importantly, it’s all for a good cause.
