Sean Penn and Petra Nemcova hit the red carpet in Cannes for Penn's black-tie event to bring awareness to his fundraiser ... Haiti: Carnival in Cannes.
The benefit was created to raise money for the victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. At a press conference before the event, Penn said the following about the cause:
- "The reason we have Haiti fatigue is because there was never a commitment in the first place. It is time for our formidable and elegant president to stand side by side with the new president of Haiti."
Penn created the J/P Haitian Relief Organization following the earthquake in the hopes of raising money for those affected by the natural disaster.
