Mariah Carey wasn’t the only one hosting a party at Tavern on the Green Thursday night.
The Tavern was pulling double duty. In one area, Mariah and other celebrities like Michael Strahan, Michelle Williams and Anthony Edwards, raised money to send underprivileged kids to summer camp. In another some students who probably went to whatever camp they liked were celebrating their prom.
As Mariah and her husband Nick Cannon spoke to the press outside the fundraiser, stretch limos pulled up continuously behind her with dozens of tuxedoed teenagers spilling out.
I told Mariah she should head into the prom, but I don’t know if she decided to make their night.
And while the kids may not have gotten any closer than flashbulb distance to the pop star, Nick Cannon was gracious enough to help a few of them get Mariah’s autograph before she went in.
