The Golden Heart Awards celebrate the influential contributions of individuals, corporations and foundations to the organization’s cause. Funds that were raised at the awards ceremony will help ensure that no person in the NYC Metropolitan area need suffer the dual crises of hunger and life-altering illness.
This year, Michael Kors had the honour of presenting the Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Service to model and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss.
Michael Kors has many philanthropic commitments, including Watch Hunger Stop, a partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme to help build a world with zero hunger. Launched in 2013, Watch Hunger Stop has raised over 13 million meals for those in need. Over the course of more than twenty years, Michael has given his time and support to God’s Love We Deliver, reflecting his deep-rooted respect for this exceptional organization.
Karlie Kloss, an American Top Model and entreprenuer, received the Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Service.
Danny Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of the Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) received The Golden Heart Awards for Lifetime Achievement. Leading an active life of volunteering, Danny Meyer has served on the boards of Share Our Strength and City Harvest, as well as being the executive committee member for NYC & Co and the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
The third award went to Wing Tat Leung for The Golden Heart Award for Outstanding Volunteerism.
