Giorgio Armani will partner with actor Sean Penn to raise money for Haitian charities at the Cannes Film Festival.
Armani is sponsoring Penn's fundraising dinner Haiti: Carnival in Cannes, which Penn will host on Friday with model Petra Nemcova. The dinner's proceeds will be donated to Penn's Haitian Relief Organization, Nemcova's Happy Hearts Fund, and Artists For Peace and Justice.
"I am proud to stand alongside Sean Penn, a man cut from a very rare cloth," Armani said. "It is an honor to be a part of Sean's remarkable life of service by joining his humanitarian efforts for the people of Haiti."
In the past, Armani has supported charities like UNICEF, amfAR, and the Global Fund. In 2002, he was named a Goodwill Ambassador for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees.
