A couple of weeks ago we produced such a lovely party, a carnival for kids and their families. Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation has long held a gala unlike adult galas to raise money to eradicate pediatric AIDS and beautifully teach young children the importance of giving back. I have long admired this special project from afar and feel very fortunate to be part of it for the very first time this year. On a crisp Fall Sunday, we invited 800 people to JOIN THE MOMENT.
Coming off the recent David Stark Design clock contest and the clocks we made for a West Elm store opening, we still had clocks on the brain. How perfect? For Kids for Kids, the clocks become a metaphor and a call to action.
The event was held at Industria Superstudio in the West Village. Upon entering the event space, our clock wall set the tone for an afternoon of fun. All floors and ancillary tents were filled with games, face painting, fabulous food, storytelling, crafts, an art room where the kids painted side by side with some of the most renowned artists of the New York art scene, and finally a station where the kids and parents alike packed packages, mommy and baby survival kits sent to Africa after the event. Take a look at the pictures below.
A special shout out to our buddies at Innovative Philanthropy.What an incredible job you guys do with this event! Thank you so much for including us. The honor is ours.
