For 2021, we have decided to cast our Annual Gala as a much-needed celebration! It will be Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 6:30 pm, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City, and will mark our return to an in-person event with a seated dinner, awards program and entertainment.
We are calling our event “An Evening of Delivering Good” and the theme will celebrate the positive force of families, whether they are born or chosen. We are also developing opportunities for streaming part of the program, and we will feature an edited video replay after the event. For more information about our 2021 Celebration plans, please contact us at [email protected].
Everyone at Delivering Good is hoping to celebrate in-person on November 3, 2021. As the New York State and CDC guidelines evolve, we will continue to keep you posted on the details of the evening.
In 2020, the pandemic led us to combine our Annual Gala and our Women of Inspiration Luncheon into a virtual gala that raised $1.2 million for Delivering Good’s ongoing mission. The honorees included Terry Lundgren for the Lifetime Achievement Award; Michael Kors for the Vanguard Award; Angela Chan, managing director and president of Chargeurs *PCC Fashion Technologies, and Amanda and Karen Zuckerman, cofounders of Dormify, with the Women of Inspiration Award; and American Eagle Outfitters with the Impact Award.
2020 marked the 35th anniversary of Delivering Good and featured the gala theme “Coming Together to Create a More Equitable World.” It emphasized the importance of donating to disaster and poverty relief, a particularly timely message given the ongoing global pandemic and other traumatic events. Due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization shared the gala via streamed video and sold virtual tables for the event.
The event was be emceed by Ken Downing, Chief Creative Officer of Triple Five Group, along with special guest Whoopi Goldberg. The evening will feature a mix of industry awards, talks with leading philanthropists from the fashion world and musical performances.
