With the swirl of events leading up to New York Fashion Week, it’s important to make time for the ones that truly deserve our support. Earlier this week, I attended the Jeffrey Fashion Cares VIP Kickoff Event at the uber-glam Jeffrey boutique in New York’s Meatpacking District. Hosted by Jeffrey founder Jeffrey Kalinsky, Town & Country magazine, Jeffrey Fashion Cares chairs Todd Sears & Dan Rothmann, and co-chairs Christian Langbein, William Li and David Wu, the evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and shopping was dedicated to celebrating the 10th anniversary year of the amazing Jeffrey Fashion Cares charity.
Jeffrey Fashion Cares donations directly support the Hetrick-Martin Institute, Lambda Legal, ACRIA, and the Point Foundation. In just 10 years, the event has raised over $4 million for LGBT and LGBT youth charities in New York City. And each year, Jeffrey Fashion Cares attracts and hosts an A-List guest-list of socially-minded luminaries including philanthropists, top celebrities, famous socialites, fashion executives and designers, international marketing, sales, and banking executives, media executives and editors, well-known models, stars of film, stage, and television, and world-renowned artists many of which were present at the VIP Kickoff Event this week.
And though the kickoff fete was a not to be missed occasion, the real celebration will take place on April 2 during the official Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2013 Fundraiser benefiting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and those living with HIV/AIDS. Taking place on the Intrepid on Pier 86 and hosted by Lexus and The Palette Fund, the fundraiser will be an opulent evening of glitz and glam with the added bonus of helping this inspiring organization. Tickets for the Jeffrey Fashion Cares Fundraiser are available now at www.jeffreyfashioncares.org, or check out the exclusive Save the Date below! We were thrilled to be a part of this opportunity and so glad we’re able to spread the word on such an important cause!
