1st Look Loves: "Gossip Girl's" Matthew Settle & Project Sunshine




    A cruise ship battered by rough seas and powerful winds in the Atlantic Ocean cut short its voyage and docked at its New Jersey port Wednesday night, as thousands of weary passengers streamed out of the ship what one woman called "a cruise from hell."

    Actor Matthew Settle of "Gossip Girl" hosted a packed, fun-filled party this past weekend inspired by the Roaring Twenties and "Boardwalk Empire."  Jeffrey Jah, co-owner of the chic venue Lambs Club where the fete was held, and luxury lifestyle magazine SMASH teamed up with Settle, who is the glossy’s cover man for the autumn/winter issue. 

    The best news? All of the event’s proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships and the silent auction benefitted Project Sunshine, a non-profit whose mission is to bring arts and educational programming to children and families dealing with serious medical challenges in cities all over the country and internationally.

    Settle recently joined Project Sunshine at a hospital in The Bronx to help pediatric patients celebrate Halloween. He read books with the children and visited those who could not leave their rooms. The children, despite their illnesses, were dressed up for the occasion, including one little girl with whom Settle especially bonded.
