K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, the charity of choice for new product donations made by companies in the fashion, home and children’s industries, will honor two industry leaders at its annual gala fundraiser Wednesday, November 9, 2016, at the prestigious American Museum of Natural History in New York City. This year, the charity’s annual gala recognizes the support of Richard Barry, Executive Vice President, Global Chief Merchandising Officer at Toys“R”Us, Inc. and Marc Heller, President of CIT Commercial Services and K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers Executive Board Member.
The honorees’ commitment to K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers over the years has impacted millions of children, families and individuals in need, both nationally and internationally. In addition to the two honorees, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers is also recognizing three top product donors, highlighting their contributions to the organization and how they have helped improve the lives of millions of people in need every year. Together, Global Brands Group, PVH Corp., and Skechers USA have given K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers over $113 million in useful, new product.
“Every year, it is an honor to come together to support K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers with leaders in the fashion, home, and children’s industries,” said Gala Co-Chairman Rick Darling of Li & Fung Trading, Inc. “K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers makes a profound impact in the lives of those challenged by poverty and natural disasters.”
“The K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers gala is an amazing celebration that helps support people in need.” said Gala Co-Chairman Howard Kahn of Kahn Lucas. “This year, we have the pleasure of also honoring top product donors who provide new product for people challenged by poverty, who would otherwise have to make hard choices between food, housing or new clothes.”
This year’s gala highlights the theme of #DeliveringGood, and the need for new product is immensely important – today one out of every six Americans face poverty. Throughout the year, our product donors help us provide hope, dignity and self-esteem to people in need. Gala tables start at $15,000, and a limited number of individual tickets will be available at $1,500. There are also several special opportunities for corporate or brand sponsorship at the gala; for additional information please contact Lauren Barnett at Lauren@DonateProduct.com or via phone at 212-279-5343 To learn more about the gala, visit www.KIDSFDGALA.com.
