On Friday, October 29, Bette Midler hosted Hulaween 2010, her annual gala to benefit the New York Restoration Project., at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

This year's event honored Senator John Kerry and featured a special performance by singer Paul Simon, a costume contest judged by fashion designer Michael Kors, and a live auction with actress Judy Gold.
