WEST VILLAGE—We know, the last thing you need on your calendar is yet another holiday party, but here's one attached to a good cause. Next Wednesday, December 14th, Lauren Bush Lauren wil be hosting a fund-raiser for FEED Projects at Urban Zen (705 Greenwich Street.) $100 gets you access to cocktails, snacks, and a fair-trade market, while $250 gets you access to the special "champagne lounge." A portion of the proceeds go to providing school lunches for kids around the world. Get tickets via Gilt City here. [RackedWire]
