Footwear Industry rallies to raise $3.6 Million for Two Ten

When it comes to raising money for people in need, the footwear industry really knows how to rally.

Two Ten raised $3.6 million at its annual gala on November 29, thanks to the leadership of father-son duo Bobby and Seth Campbell, of BBCi — along with many other generous donors including Michael Greenberg of Skechers and Steve Madden, who generously stepped up to help us meet our fundraising goals.

The Hammerstein Ballroom was alive with over 1,500 colleagues from across the footwear industry. From honoring special volunteers who have gone above and beyond for Two Ten, to engaging with the next generation of industry leaders, the night was full of celebration.

The huge effort couldn’t have come at a better time: footwear families across the U.S. have been calling in record numbers and Two Ten is likely to exceed the current budget for relief dollars before the end of the fiscal year.

Please save December 5, 2018, for the next Two Ten gala event which will be chaired by Sam, Libby & Jesse Edelman!
