For the second year of the Celebrate Your Status gala, New York tastemakers, entrepreneurs and business leaders will gather on Monday, December 17, 9pm at the Gansevoort Park Avenue in hopes to raise $20,000 and 2,000 toys for Petra Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund (HHF). All toys and proceeds will Hurricane Sandy by way of the Tunnel To Towers Foundation. This annual event is the brainchild of Status Luxury Group (SLG) Founder and CEO Nick Andreottola, who pairs affluent clients with luxury brands and prominent business owners to support the cause. Andreottola is joined by co-chairs Nicole Rose Stillings of Champagning and Kim McCall, the Director of Development for HHF. This dynamic team is actively welcoming more cause-conscious New Yorkers to join the effort by sending toys, making donations and purchasing tickets to the event here: CelebrateYourStatus.com.
New donors will join an enthusiastic and eclectic list of current individuals and businesses, such as Perrier-Jouet, Gansevoort Park Avenue, Bulldog Gin, Cimon Art, PAMA Liqueur, Gemma Kahng, Otrera, Champagning and more.
“I’ve been running a holiday charity event for the past 5 years, but I am by far the most excited for the upcoming gala, as it will be bigger and better than all years combined,” Andreottola says. “For the past two years, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed being one of Happy Hearts partners, as their mission and previous accomplishments are truly inspirational.”
Previous celebrity appearances have included Wyclef Jean, Russel Simmons, Josh Groban, and more.
Andreottola, Stillings and McCall will be joined by host committee members Aidan Butler, Ana Berry, Colleen Reid, David Cote, David Schulman, Doug Melville, Drew Hunter, Fabien Desgroux, Frank Davi, Henry Stimler, Jack Chen, Jonathan Eisenberg, Kate Zaman, Kirsten Hansen, Lara Smith, Lauren Goodrich, Lauren Rae Levy, Melanie Anderson, Ric Addison, Saif Rahman, Shannon Kelly, Steve Lewis, and Susan Kilkenny who have donated their time and talents to the cause.
