London: Supermodel Naomi Campbell will be honoured for her charitable works.

Campbell, who has raised more than $7 mn for charitable causes, will be awarded at the Angel Ball in New York Oct 17.

"She really is amazing woman and she does a lot for charity. She has her own charity. She raised a lot of money this summer for Haiti and for AIDS relief," quoted Denise Rich - who founded the charity-as saying.

Angel Ball is an event organised by the Angel Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness of cancer research.
