Waltham, Mass. - Two Ten Footwear Foundation will welcome 1,300 guests to their 2011 Annual Dinner to be held on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011 from 6-10 p.m. at the Marriott Marquis in New York City, located in Times Square. The Annual Dinner raises funds for those in the footwear trade and recognizes industry luminaries who have contributed to furthering Two Ten's mission in substantial ways. This year's honorees include Peggy Kim Meill, who will be receiving the T. Kenyon Holly award, Two Ten's most prestigious honor for philanthropy; and Daniel L. Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of Schwartz & Benjamin, who will be receiving the A.A. Bloom Award for volunteerism.
This year's Annual Dinner theme celebrates Two Ten as a virtuous circle. Wesley R. Card, CEO of The Jones Group, serves as the 2011 Dinner Chair."I have long believed that the success of any business or industry is largely a function of its ability to create a virtuous circle," says Mr. Card. "And by virtuous circle, I mean that every idea, person, and action builds on what came before it in a continuous positive circle - where good begets good on a very powerful, human level. Two Ten Footwear Foundation, and this gathering, are reminders that we are the most human of industries. And that our strength and success depends on the individual successes of so many people, from the stockroom to the boardroom - and the virtuous circle they create."
During the event three exciting travel packages will be raffled off, and raffle bracelets will be available for purchase during the cocktail reception. Raffle winners will be announced at the conclusion of the event and winners must be present to claim their prize.
