Stars including Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts and Isla Fisher all turned out for a charity polo match in New York on Sunday to raise money for ongoing aid efforts in Haiti.
X-Men star Jackman hosted the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Governors Island to benefit Donna Karan’s Urban Zen charity and its Hope, Help and Rebuild Haiti (HHRH) scheme.

Jackman introduced the tournament with a joke about Broadway’s troubled Spider-Man musical, telling the star-studded crowd, “It is the only sport more dangerous than appearing on Broadway in Spider-Man,” according to New York Post column Page Six.

Former Fugees star Wyclef Jean also entertained the VIPs by staging an impromptu performance in a guest tent.

Other famous faces at the event included Olivia Palermo and Kathy Griffin.
