Calvin Klein, Inc. today announced its plans to present the first-ever Save the Children benefit gala on Tuesday, October 1st at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. The event will honor influential supporters of the organization, including Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; award-winning actor and Save the Children Artist Ambassador, Jennifer Garner; PVH Corp.’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Emanuel (Manny) Chirico; the Bezos Family Foundation; and, Tipton Elementary School’s Early Childhood Coordinator, Virginia Almeida.
Hosted by NBC News Correspondent and former First Daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, the inspiring event will serve to increase awareness for Save the Children and early childhood education programs in the U.S. In honor of the occasion, Save the Children will bestow five newly created awards, including: National Legacy Award to Secretary Clinton; National Child Advocate Award to Ms. Garner; National Responsibility Award to Mr. Chirico; National Humanitarian Award to the Bezos Family Foundation, which will be accepted by Co-founder Jackie Bezos; and, the National Child Service Award to Ms. Almeida for her work on Tipton Elementary School’s “Early Steps to School Success Program” in Tipton, California.
Guests at the event will enjoy a special musical performance by Multi-Platinum and Grammy-nominated recording artist, Daughtry. Additionally, debuting that night will be a short film produced by Ms. Garner, which features a true story of a mother and child who have benefitted from the programs that Save the Children offers.
“Our philanthropic mission is championing causes that advocate women and children, so we are thrilled to be furthering our long-standing relationship with Save the Children,” said Mr. Chirico. “Over the past eight years, our organization and associates have raised over $3 million dollars in support of Save The Children, and so I am especially honored to be recognized by this impactful organization and among such distinguished company. The fact that our Calvin Klein division is hosting Save the Children’s first major fundraising event in New York City creates a wonderful synergy and makes it especially meaningful.”
“Save the Children is incredibly grateful for the support of Calvin Klein,” said Mark Shriver, Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives of Save the Children. “We know from more than 80 years of experience, that early childhood education can ensure a brighter future for a child living in poverty. With nearly 1 in 4 children in the United States living in poverty today, there is an even greater urgency for increased investments in high-quality early learning programs. The gala will shine a spotlight on this need and, we hope, inspire Americans from all walks of life to take action.”
Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change in the lives of children in need around the world. In the United States, we strive to ensure that the most underserved children start school ready for success, thrive academically and developmentally, and are healthy and active; we also work to ensure that all children are safe and protected when disaster strikes. Through our early childhood development, literacy, health, and emergency preparedness and response programs, we are giving 240,000 children in 20 states and the District of Columbia a chance at a brighter future.
