5% Goes to God’s Love We Deliver!

It was an exciting week for buyers at the New York Accessory Market and I loved working with Robert Rose, planning their rooftop cocktail party for client’s and industry friends on August 7! At the conclusion of their event, they chose God’s Love We Deliver for their 5% donation – another Event that Gives Back!”.

An excerpt from their website:

God’s Love We Deliver is the tri-state area’s leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. 

Founded in 1985 when one woman began delivering food on her bicycle to a man dying from AIDS, God’s Love now cooks 4,600 meals each weekday, delivering them to clients living with life-altering illnesses in all five boroughs of New York City, Newark and Hudson County, New Jersey. All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, their children and to the senior caregivers of our senior clients, without regard to income, and we have never maintained a waiting list. Because we believe the combination of hunger and serious illness is a crisis, we deliver food within 24 – 48 hours of first being contacted.   

God’s Love We Deliver is a non-sectarian organization, providing meals with the strong belief of “food as medicine.” To that end, we employ a team of registered dietitians who individually tailor meals to each client’s specific medical requirements. God’s Love provides all services by employing a small but dedicated professional staff and with the critical assistance of nearly 8,000 volunteers annually.

Robert Rose Cocktail Reception!

I was excited when I got the call from Robert Rose, a jewelry line that has been featured on such celebrity driven shows as Wendy Williams, E! Entertainment, Project Runway, Entertainment Tonight and the Insider and often found in magazines such as InStyle, Elle, Glamour, Lucky, Essence, O Magazine and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The owners needed help planning a cocktail reception on their showroom’s rooftop terrace during the New York Accessories Market Week and I was thrilled to help!

As luck would have it, the forecast showed rain for the night of the party and we had 48 hours to execute Plan B; tenting the terrace.

The party was a huge success despite the weather, which in the end never really rained! Regardless of having the tent, there was still a great view of the Empire State building.

Neuman’s did a fantastic job on the catering and the Milkbar cake was a hit!

74Events’ DJ, Duane, kept the party rock’n until the very end, finishing the night off with “We Are Family”, a tribute to the Robert Rose family.
