Paula Abdul

Abdul Goes to The Mart

Grammy award-winning recording artist Paula Abdul attended an event with Grammy winning musicians of AC Timba Jazz Project at L.A. Mart’s 4th Annual American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) fundraiser during the July 2005 Gift & Home Furnishings Market™ “Takin’ it to the Beach,” last Saturday.

Abdul was escorted into the Caribbean-themed party by L.A. Mart vice president and general manager Gerry Seibel. Abdul signed autographs and posed for photos with guests.

Seibel introduced Abdul who applauded the crowd for their support of Gift for Life and amfAR. Addressing the rise in HIV and AIDS-related cases specifically among women, Abdul encouraged everyone to reach for their checkbooks, bid on the vast array of donated silent auction items and enjoy the party. Later in the evening, a dance with Abdul became a live auction item earning nearly $1,000 from Scott Rosenberg, principal, The Rosenberg Group, a Division of Filbert & Fig, who claimed the winning bid.

Awash in a spectrum of sunset-at-the-beach hues, the event radiated a high energy and festive mood contributing to the evening’s success, raising $37,000 and placing L.A. Mart’s total fundraising for Gift for Life in excess of $100,000, to date. The L.A. Mart was once again supported in its sponsorship by some of the best names in the gift and home furnishings industries, as well as numerous time-honored business partners and long-standing friends.

Abdul is seen in the above photo appreciating the gift basket given in thanks by the clients of Glam Entertainment PR. She received:
