Jeffrey Fashion Cares, the annual fashion fundraiser benefiting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and those with HIV/AIDS, announced that Terrence Meck, founder and executive director of The Palette Fund, will receive its first annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares Community Leadership Award.
The award, honoring an individual or organization who has both professionally and personally benefited the lives of LGBT people and those living with HIV/AIDS, will be given at this year’s Jeffrey Fashion Cares event, to be held at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on March 26. Oscar-nominated actress and fashion icon Chloë Sevigny will be the Honorary Chair for this year’s event, joined by Todd Sears and Dan Rothmann, who are returning as co-chairs for their ninth and eight years, respectively.
“We created the award to recognize people who have affected change on a wide range of fronts to the benefit of the LGBT community, much like Jeffrey Fashion Cares itself, which provides funding to organizations working on LGBT rights, HIV/AIDS, and at-risk youth,” said Jeffrey Kalinsky, founder of Jeffrey Fashion Cares.
The fundraiser will be held Monday, March 26, 2012 in New York City. Details and tix at www.jeffreyfashioncares.org.
