Sarah Jessica Parker - Sarah Jessica Parker & Anne Hathaway Help Raise $2 Million For U.k. Museum

Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway helped to raise more than $2 million (£1.3 million) for the U.K. art community at a New York City gala on Wednesday (08May13).

The Sex and the City star served as an honorary chair for the Tate Americas Foundation Triennial Artists Dinner, which was held to generate support for The Tate, a network of four museums in the U.K. housing British, international and contemporary art.

Parker admitted she was thrilled to get involved with the fundraiser as she loves visiting the museum every time she jets into London.

She tells, "I love this museum. I have a routine. I get off the plane in London, and I drop my suitcase at the hotel, and I go immediately to the Tate. It started years and years ago, and I can't explain it. It's inexplicable. Why do we love a boy? Why do we love a book? Why do I love the Tate? I don't know. It's just a wonderful, exciting place to see old works and new works and I've always had this great affection for it. I think it's amazing, and everyone I know that steps into that museum is always thrilled by what they see - young and old."

R&B star Ciara, British Tv host Alexa Chung and Martha Stewart also showed up to mingle with artists and benefactors at the glitzy event. Profits will be used to acquire new artwork for The Tate.
