On November 1st Project Help Us Give, the New York-based charity, celebrated its 62nd Anniversary at this year’s H.U.G. Gala honoring industry leaders Jockey International and Lenzing Fibers.
The event was hosted by Emcee Lisa Cusimano, a New York Firefighter featured in Jockey’s “Show ‘Em What’s Underneath” campaign featuring Everyday Heroes. Apparel industry executives from the retail, manufacturing and supply sectors attended the H.U.G. Gala at the luxurious 230 FIFTH PENTHOUSE in New York City. The funds raised benefitted Rusk Rehabilitation’s pediatric programs and other children’s services at NYU Langone Medical Center. To date, the H.U.G. Gala has raised more than $6.5 million for Rusk pediatric rehabilitation and Tisch Hospital programs.
“We are celebrating Project Help US Give’s 62nd year of making better the lives of those who cannot help themselves and giving hope to those in need,” said P-HUG President Clelia Parisi. “We used the occasion of our November 1st H.U.G. Gala to give special thanks to our members, industry friends, past honorees and contributors for their continuing generosity.”
