London: Pop star Lady Gaga has reportedly raised $47.4 million for a charitable organization, which attempts to alleviate problems caused by poverty.

A website reports that Gaga arrived at the Robin Hood Foundation`s annual gala in Manhattan in a giant glowing egg. The money raised at the event is said to go toward the Robin Hood Foundation`s veteran and poverty programmes in New York City.

Other performers included veteran singer Tony Bennett, comedian Seth Meyers and Kid Rock, who sang with 300 military personnel in the aisles.

The guests at the gala event included Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber and Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady.
