Jake Gyllenhaal Shows His Support at a Spring Benefit in Harlem

Apr 16 2013 - 7:39am

Jake Gyllenhaal [1] stepped out for the Edible Schoolyard's inaugural Spring benefit dinner, called "A Garden Grows in Harlem," in NYC last night. It may have been their first-ever benefit dinner, but Jake and the Edible Schoolyard [2] have been working together for over three years. He was joined by other big names like J.Crew's Jenna Lyons, Martha Stewart [3], and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg for the event, which benefits the creation of a rooftop garden and kitchen classroom at Manhattan's P.S. 7 in East Harlem.

Jake, who was the honoree of the charitable evening out, also scored a recent accolade in the Big Apple. Jake made his New York stage debut last Fall in the play If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, and he is nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award [4], which honors the best in Off-Broadway theater performances.
