NEW YORK, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Self-made pharmaceutical billionaire Stewart Rahr is featured on the July/August cover of Hampton Sheet. The three-page spread includes over 30 photos of the entrepreneur with celebrities and moguls including Former President Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Victoria Beckham, Prince Harry, Jay Leno, Michael Phelps, Bon Jovi, Shaquille O'Neil, Russell Simmons, Regis Philbin, Phil Mickelson, and others. The photos also give an inside look into Rahr's $45 million East Hampton Estate, Burnt Point, and highlights the array of charity events that Rahr often attends and donates to.

"I was thrilled to be approached by the magazine to do this story," said Rahr. "To be able to speak about charities close to my heart to an audience of my friends, peers, and potential donors, only helps to spread the word and plant the seed of giving into people's minds."

The article also emphasizes the altruistic side of "Stewie Rah Rah, King of All Fun," as he is constantly donating to charities and institutions, including Make a Wish Foundation, Miami's Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis, National Kidney Foundation, Police Athletic League, and Arnold Palmer's Hospital for Children. Quotes from his close friends, including Donald Trump who calls him a "spectacular person" re-emphasizes that this billionaire has nothing more than a heart of gold.

Hampton Sheet also touches on additional initiatives outside Rahr's $5 billion empire, Kinray Inc (a pharmaceutical wholesaler), including his new film and recording initiatives, family life, and plans for the future.
