The Helen Mills Theater provided a wonderful setting for all our guests and the perfect background to compliment Epperson’s fashion-forward designs. A heartfelt thank you to Epperson for his generosity in offering to collaborate with Children of the City to make our first annual fashion show a reality. Our Master of Ceremonies David Tyree, formerly of the NY Giants, added a lighthearted and entertaining vibe to the event as host. We also would like to share our appreciation of the many volunteers, models and auction donors that participated as well as the talented hairstylists and make-up artists from Hiro Haraguchi Salon and Lancôme that donated their valuable skills to the event.
Children of the city has worked throughout the years by way of education and outreach to provide families in the community with the means necessary to help them overcome the many obstacles they face. With continued support, we will reduce the abysmal rate and negative effects of childhood poverty so prevalent in the inner-city neighborhoods of New York.
I am overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone who has given their time, funds, and support. Your efforts speak volumes and remind us that together we can all make a difference! On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, and those we serve, thank you for making this event possible and for providing hope and inspiration to thousands of children.
