Jake Gyllenhaal 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 have been working together for over three years. He was joined by other big names like J.Crew's Jenna Lyons, Martha Stewart, 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, which honors the best in Off-Broadway theater performances.
