Charities that revolve around food have always been close to my heart. It just always seemed like a natural fit- with my love of food and baking, and since my husband is a chef, it's something we are both passionate about. Food Bank for NYC provides resources, education, and support to New Yorkers in need. They work to warehouse and distribute free food to 1.5 million hungry New Yorkers every year, making it their mission to end hunger in our city.
I'm proud to work with Food Bank for NYC to make that goal a reality! For that reason, I was delighted to have them on board as the beneficiary of a recent event I hosted with Escada. Guests came to shop the new collection, with a portion of proceeds going directly to the organization. Complimentary makeup application from Sisley Paris and fashion consultations from celebrity stylist Javier Pedroza were also available. We had a wonderful turnout, and were able to raise significant money for Food Bank for NYC. It was a great kick-off to my working with them, and I look forward to what the future holds!
