Britney Spears will be hosting a charity dinner for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, reports E Online.
The pop star may be getting ready to kick off her Femme Fatale tour next month, but that doesn’t stop her from having a heart of gold.
Spears will be hosting a fancy dinner next week, titled ’An Evening of Southern Style’ on May 11 in Beverly Hills. The sit-down dinner at a private residence will benefit the St. Bernard Project, an organization that continues to help Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
The group has already rebuilt homes for more than 350 families with the help of 32,000 volunteers, but as we all know, there is much more to be done.
“I am so honored to be a party of this cause,” Spears said. “Louisiana will always be a part of my soul.”
Spears won’t be the head chef in charge, but her professional chef dad Jamie will be. Papa Spears’ menu will include Louisiana shrimp and grits, jambalaya and soft shell crab fish fry, among other things.
For tickets, visit stbernardproject.org. The United Way for the Greater New Orleans Area has agreed to match the first $100,000 in donations.
What a great cause and idea – just goes to show that Spears has a real genuine heart. Despite all her crazy antics and questionable fashion choices, she is a nice, normal, southern girl deep down.
The comeback queen kicks off her tour on June 16 in Sacramento, California with guest star Nicki Minaj. The 26-city gig finishes up August 13 in Toronto (which is when I will be attending, SO excited.)
