New York, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2011
“THE NEW YORK FAME” is New York City’s premier outlet for high-end fashion designers and philanthropy to come together to highlight style and social good.
A portion of the proceeds from this red carpet affair will go to benefit The Twin Tower Orphan Fund, a non-profit organization founded on September 11, 2001 for the sole purpose of providing educational and welfare assistance to the children who were orphaned (who lost one or both parents) by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
In honor and remembrance of the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, The New York F.AM.E. and The Twin Tower Orphan Fund struck a partnership to raise funds and awareness for the organization via a string of seven media and fundraising extravaganza’s.
“The New York Fame is proud to be associated with the 9/11 Orphan Fund. An education is a necessity for any child, but we feel it is even more important to empower and support children who lost one or more parent to the terrorist attacks in New York City on 9-11-01 and help ensure they have the best chance possible to succeed,” said Melisa Brown, President & CEO of The New York FAME. “Our commitment includes donating a percent of all proceeds associated with any of our events leading up to and including Fashion Week 2011 in the form of $20,000 scholarships for as many children as possible.”
The New York FAME Fashion week will make its debut 12:00PM on September 8th at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. Leading up the main event, The New York FAME seeks to use their media prowess to raise funds for The Twin Tower Orphan Fund. Four exclusive events make up The New YORK FAME, preceded by four VIP press and industry only parties at some of the swankiest addresses in NYC.
