The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding (FFEU) celebrated its 26th anniversary with a fundraiser at Russell Simmons’ home in Hollywood on Sept. 30. The organization aims to promote racial harmony and strengthen relationships between ethnic groups, especially among the Muslim, Jewish and Black communities.

Simmons, who is chairman of the FFEU, announced a generous donation from Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. The Smiths’ donation will fund meals for the Los Angeles homeless on Christmas Day. Religious leaders from the Christian, Muslim and Jewish communities will help serve the meals.

Adam Fogelson, chairman of STX Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group, philanthropist Magdy Eletreby and actor Jeffrey Wright were honored at the event, which hosted over 300 attendees. Wright was presented with the FFEU’s Joseph Papp Racial Harmony Award.

Notable guests included FFEU’s Rabbi Marc Schneier, Ken Sunshine, Flo-Rida, DJ Cassidy and STX’s Oren Aviv, Rich Sullivan, Cathy Schulman and Jack Pan.
