Brad Pitt Gives Fans a Thrill in New Orleans Ahead of Make it Right Gala

Brad Pitt gave a wave to the crowd below from a balcony in the French Quarter, New Orleans this morning (May 17, 2014).

Brad is in New Orleans for his Make It Right Gala this evening and met up with fellow actor Matthew Mcconaughey and football star Drew Brees who are also in town for a charity event.

If you want to attend tonight’s gala, you’re going to have to pony up a hefty sum. A table for 10 at the gala can still be had for $25,000 — individual $1,000 tickets sold out months ago.

The host of the Make it Right gala at the Sugar Mill will be legendary comedian Chris Rock. Additional entertainment will come courtesy of comedian Jim Gaffigan, rockers Kings of Leon, Bruno Mars, and other special guests.

Founded by Pitt in 2007, Make It Right has so far built 100 homes of the 150 that organizers hope to erect for Ninth Ward residents and other people in need.
