MICHAEL KORS PRESENTS COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD TO GWYNETH PALTROW
On Monday, October 16th, 2017, God’s Love We Deliver hosted their 11th Annual Golden Heart Awards dinner at Spring Studios in New York City. The evening featured a cocktail reception which highlighted celebrity chef dishes, dinner, an awards presentation and for the first time, an after party. The star-studded evening helped raise 2.3 million dollars.
Each year, The Golden Heart Awards celebrate the influential contributions of individuals, corporations and foundations to the organization’s cause. Funds that were raised at the awards ceremony will help ensure that no person in the NYC Metropolitan area need suffer the dual crises of hunger and life-altering illness.
Michael Kors has many philanthropic commitments, including Watch Hunger Stop, a partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme to help build a world with zero hunger. Launched in 2013, Watch Hunger Stop has raised over 16 million meals for those in need.
Over the course of more than thirty years, Michael has given his time and support to God’s Love We Deliver, reflecting his deep-rooted respect for this exceptional organization. His personal gift in 2012 launched the initiative for the new building that now bears his name. This year, Michael had the honor of presenting the Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Service to actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
