Help Send Kate Oliver to Cannes!

It’s not quite tsunami relief, but Mike Bloomberg’s Commissioner of Film, Theater, and Broadcasting, Kate Oliver, is circulating an email to raise $30,000 for her own favorite charity: sending Kate Oliver to Cannes.

“The New York Production Alliance, is asking each of its member organizations to help us raise $30,000 to defray the costs for Pat Swinney Kaufman (NYS Governor’s Office Motion Picture and Television Development) and Katherine Oliver (NYC Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting) to travel to the Cannes Film Festival to push the ‘New York Incentive Package,'” the email reads.

They’re asking members to pledge between $500 and $2,000.

The email also quotes Oliver saying:

“Costs here are $35k –plus we have to consider staff and travel and accomodation. Wondering if we can reach out to our NY industry … vendors, suppliers,labor etc and see if there have interest in offering support. This is the year for us to promote the MADE IN NY incentive program…INTERNATIONALLY. We would appreciate your support and guidance.”

Were this administration less unimpeachably pure, some might look askance at this kind of request from the Mayor’s office.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
