On Wednesday, April 1, a crowd of more than 700 interior decorators, fashion designers, philanthropists and socialites gathered at the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s annual President’s Dinner, helping to raise nearly $900,000 to fund critical after school programs for more than 11,000 children the Bronx Club supports.
This year’s gala, which celebrated the organization’s 43rd annual Show House and 100 years of service for children, honored the Kravet family for its continued commitment to charitable giving. Cary Kravet accepted the award on behalf of the company, thanking everyone in the extended Kravet “family” who have supported Kravet through nearly a century in business. Tables were draped in vibrant Jonathan Adler Vionnet All Blue linen by Kravet.
The President’s Dinner serves as a prelude to Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s largest fundraising event of the year, the Decorator Show House. The internationally recognized Kips Bay Decorator Show House invites the country’s premier interior decorators and architects to transform a luxury Manhattan space into a month-long exhibition of awe-inspiring design, attracting more than 20,000 visitors each year. This year’s Show House will take over the Arthur Sachs Mansion at 58 East 66th Street in Manhattan’s iconic Lennox Hill neighborhood from May 14 - June 11.
