Bill Clinton & Ben Stiller To Co-Chair Haiti Benefit

Former President Bill Clinton will be co-hosting a New York City gala to benefit The Stiller Foundation that's building schools in Haiti.

The foundation says he'll host the Sept. 23 fundraiser with actor Ben Stiller and New York art dealer David Zwirner at the Skylight Soho.

The cause is dear to Clinton's heart. He launched the Clinton Foundation Haiti Fund and created the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund with former President George W. Bush in 2010.

Stiller created his foundation after the 2010 earthquake.

The gala will be held a day after "Artists for Haiti," a benefit auction at Christie's. The auction will feature works donated by artists including Jasper Johns and Jeff Koons.

All proceeds will go to support nonprofit groups already working in Haiti.
