It was a record-breaking night and we could not have done it without you! Together we raised an astounding $3.7 million, a 79-year Gala record, proving once again that we have an incredibly generous and compassionate industry that truly, truly cares about each other.
Sam, Libby and Jesse Edelman and the entire Edelman team were extraordinary partners, putting their time and energy into helping us design and produce the most extraordinary evening of fundraising and celebration in the history of our industry. Together we created a stunning event at the awe-inspiring American Museum of Natural History, including cocktails and appetizers alongside dazzling dinosaurs and majestic elephants; a sit down dinner of farm-to-table food under the watchful eye of a breathtaking blue whale; and strolling, techno-infused entertainment.
The Two Ten Associate Board were fabulous hosts – providing guests with the opportunity to donate on-the-spot for critical necessities like two weeks of groceries, warm winter coats, or a month of utilities for footwear families in crisis.
Together, the industry honored Michael Greenberg, Katie Butler and ZAPPOS, celebrated our twelve Two Ten Heroes and, most importantly, listened to emotional stories directly from five of our footwear colleagues who received life-changing financial support from Two Ten.
Thanks again, to each and every one of you — our kind sponsors, donors, committee members and volunteers, along with hundreds of party people from our footwear community who joined us at the event. Because of you, we are ONE TEAM: One future. Together.
