Singerand now Broadway Producer Bette Midler hosted her annual Hulaween Spook extravaganza to benefit the New York Restoration Project at the Waldorf Astoria Friday night on October 28th, 2011.
Bette's Broadway Production, "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" was awarded a 2011 Tony Award for Best Costume Design for Academy Award winners Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardiner's designs.

At this year's gala entertainment was provided by the legendary Stevie Wonder and a costume contest judged by fashion designer Michael Kors was part of the night's Halloween Gala.
In 1995, the city of Manhattan experienced a revolution that would alter its landscape forever. Returning to New York City that helped launch her celebrated career, famed entertainer Bette Midler found many of its streets, neighborhoods and parks consumed by a sea of litter and years of neglect.
"I was so upset; I didn't sleep for weeks... People were throwing their garbage out the window, leaving their lunches on the ground. Finally, I realized I needed to actually do something – even if it meant picking up trash with my own two hands."
Bette also spoke to me on the Red Carpet about possible restoration of Long Island Parks as Well.
A-listers that came to give their support included: Stevie Wonder, Jane Krakowski, Debra Messing, Michael Kors, Rene Fleming, Narciso Rodriguez, John McEnroe and Patty Smyth, Alan Cumming, Elettra Wiedemann, Martha Stewart, Sam Champion, Judy Gold, Rick Bayless, Sandra Lee and Thalia Mottola.
