NY Circle Line Downtown has teamed up with one of reality television’s newest sensations to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. On Friday, October 17, 2008 from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm, join Michael de Medici, star of MTV’s “POPLIFE: The Adventures of a de Medici” and surprise guests for Circle Line Downtown Presents Cruise for a Cure, a charity fundraiser and sail in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October 2008).


Sure to be one of this season’s hottest tickets, Cruise for a Cure is an evening that celebrates the magic of giving. The 3-hour event, which will take place dock-side and aboard Circle Line Downtown’s luxury yacht ZEPHYR, features open bar, passed hors d’ oeuvres, live DJ entertainment, a 1-hour nighttime sail, an advanced screening of “POPLIFE: The Adventures of a de Medici,” lavish gift bags by Smooth Synergy Spa, and over $60,000 in live auction items and giveaways. The gala then moves to Mansion, one of the city’s premiere nightlife destinations for even more giveaways and an after-party that will embody the decadence and drama that is New York. The entire evening will also be filmed and featured in an upcoming episode of MTV’s POPLIFE.


Circle Line Downtown and Michael de Medici will donate a portion of proceeds from the event to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. De Medici, born of privilege to one of history’s most influential families (and architects of the Renaissance), has focused his good fortune on making a difference in the lives of others. He is also a witness to the bravery of Olivia, the mother of his best friend who is in the midst of her own fight against the disease. Featured in the first episode of “POPLIFE: The Adventures of a de Medici,” Olivia’s story will touch your heart.


As a way to give back to those who are giving, de Medici has secured over $60,000 worth of auction items and giveaways for Cruise for a Cure, including:

$10,000 Spa Package

$5,000 Make Over Package

1 Trip to Paris with two POPLIFE cast members

2 Round-trip tickets to Los Angeles with hotel

2 Round trip tickets to Miami with hotel

10,000 hotel credit from the W Hotel Group
