Sir Ivan's Hamptons Happening Bashes Bullying [Video]
Recording artist Sir Ivan will host his annual Hamptons extravaganza to celebrate the success of his latest Billboard hit, Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye, produced by Paul Oakenfold and featuring Taylor Dayne.
The event dubbed Sir Ivan’s Royal Tea Dance will take place on Saturday, August 22nd at Sir Ivan’s Castle and recreate the ambiance of Studio 54, the iconic New York nightclub where every night, a mixed LGBT and heterosexual crowd danced in harmony. The Castle (below) will glow in rainbow colored LED lights for the special occasion, just like the White House did when gay marriage was made legal.

Guests will be dressed as one of the Village People, a musical group that best symbolizes the party theme of diversity, acceptance and love.
The child of Holocaust survivor, Siggi B. Wilzig, Sir Ivan knows what the toll of aggression and hostility to others can do to people as well as its long-lasting effects. Thus was born his Peaceman Foundation, founded in 2005, which battles against all discrimination, especially helping the LGBT youth who have been affected by attacks and bullying. Sir Ivan and his Peaceman Foundation have donated over $200,000 to anti-bullying charities. In 2012, Sir Ivan and The Peaceman Foundation donated $100,000 to The Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBT youth.
In conjunction with the new release of his pop single Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye, Sir Ivan and The Peaceman Foundation have donated an additional $100,000 to ten key non-profit organizations that combat bullying and intolerance including: It Gets Better Project; the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Educational Network (GLSEN); the Born This Way Foundation; Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center; Parents & Friends of Lesbians & Gays (PFLAG); Stomp Out Bullying; Campus Pride; Love is Louder/The Jed Foundation, the Anti–Defamation League and The Trevor Project. The music video for Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye was directed by MTV and BET award winning director Erik White, and net proceeds from video views, song streams and downloads will be donated to anti-bullying initiatives.
