In response to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the CFDA and Vogue created the FASHION FOR SANDY RELIEF initiative as a collective industry fund-raiser to benefit those affected by the storm.
FASHION FOR SANDY RELIEF launched on Tuesday, November 13, with an online auction at luxury charity-auction site Charitybuzz.com. Through an outpouring of support from the fashion community, the CFDA has secured NEW auction items including tea with Grace Coddington, a Tom Ford made-to-measure experience, after-hours shopping for ten at Bergdorf Goodman, and a swim lesson and lunch with Gold Medalist Ryan Lochte. Explore these new items and bid now at www.Charitybuzz.com/FashionforSandyRelief.
“Sandy has hit us hard here at home,” said CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg. “It is devastating to see so many friends and neighbors affected. As we did for Haiti and Japan, our industry has come together to raise funds with Fashion for Sandy Relief.”
All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and other relief organizations in the tri-state area.
