Sienna Miller, International Medical Corps’ Global Ambassador, will host the opening night celebration of Esquire magazine’s 8th annual Esquire House charity event to benefit the humanitarian relief organization. For the past seven years, Esquire has created the “Ultimate Bachelor Pad” in either Los Angeles or New York where a hot property is outfitted by top designers and advertisers to create a dynamic living environment. The House is then used to hold star-studded charity events – this year’s opening event will benefit International Medical Corps, a nonprofit that relieves the suffering of those impacted by war, natural disaster and disease by delivering vital health care services that focus on training. Joining Sienna Miller in supporting the event are Emily Blunt, Hugh Dancy, Claire Danes, Felicity Huffman, Keira Knightley, Jude Law, and William H. Macy.
This year’s Esquire House, located in the Hollywood Hills, was completely rebuilt and redesigned with support from sponsors including Lufthansa, Hugo Boss, Salvatore Ferragamo and Heineken. The 9,000 square-foot home which holds 4 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, an infinity pool, two-story pool house, hot tub and gym was transformed by Esquire with luxury touches including a state-of-the-art music studio, $200,000 flight simulator and an interactive 65-inch multi-touch video wall featuring Hard Rock memorabilia. The home is listed at $18.9 million and will be up for sale following the fall schedule of events taking place there. The International Medical Corps October 15 benefit event is by invitation only and will attract a mix of celebrities, International Medical Corps’ supporters, philanthropists and Esquire clients.
Since its founding in 1984, International Medical Corps has delivered more than $1 billion in emergency relief and health care services to tens of millions of people in 50 countries, including during the refugee crisis in Darfur, the Rwandan genocide, the Indian Ocean tsunami, the earthquake in Haiti and the recent floods in Pakistan. The organization’s global ambassador, Sienna Miller, has traveled with International Medical Corps to their health clinics in Democratic Republic of Congo and Haiti to raise awareness for the great health needs worldwide.
“After seeing International Medical Corps’ courageous work up-close I was determined to become more involved,” said Miller. “These people work in the toughest conditions imaginable, saving lives every single day, and bringing self-reliance and hope to the world’s most vulnerable people. I am honored to be their ambassador.”
