Spring Benefit

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of attending a beautiful event called the Fresh Air Fund Spring Benefit. The Fresh Air Fund is a non-profit organization that sends inner city children to a summer camp in upstate New York or to a host family from Virginia to Maine for the summer. Through these summer getaways, these wonderful kids have the opportunity to enjoy a once in a lifetime experience.

The spring benefit is an annual event that raises money for the fresh air fund in order to keep and improve the program every year. A few honorary guests attend the benefit and this year was no different. On the list was Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham and Zac Posen. I was definitely a bit star struck to say the least… I did not get to meet Zac Posen which was a huge bummer (but I was close enough to the podium where he gave a speech!) but I did meet Victor and Odell (yes, we are on first name basis)!

If you know me by now, you know that I love getting dressed up and going out on the town. I wore this really sweet black & white DVF dress that I fell in love with and these really cute red drop down earrings from Bloomingdales (more details on my outfit in this post). ‘

The benefit theme this year was space themed which I loved because the decor was fabulous and the theme tied well with the purpose of the Fresh Air Fund – helping kids reach for the stars. The event space was located on Pier 61 so there was also this beautiful view of the water and the moon that night.

I danced the amazing night away with family & friends and it was such a great feeling being part of an event that helps raise money for such a great cause. Read more about the Fresh Air Fund here and how to donate if you are interested!
