(NEW YORK) – Last week Phillip Gavriel participated in the New York City based Housing Works’ annual benefit – Fashion for Action. The company donated $25,000 worth of jewelry.
Jewelers have a long tradition of supporting charitable organizations, and both Royal Chain and Phillip Gavriel have a history of giving back, both directly and through partnerships with retailers over the years. This year, Phillip Gavriel contributed to his own local community in New York City with a $25,000 donation of jewelry. Housing Works is a pillar of New York City’s philanthropy efforts, and since it was founded in 1990 it fights for funding and legislation to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS have access to quality housing, healthcare, HIV prevention, and treatment, among other lifesaving services.
Every fall, Housing Works hosts the Fashion for Action event and invites various designers to give back in a charitable shopping experience. Event guests have the opportunity to shop donated apparel and jewelry from hundreds of brands while sipping champagne and mingling with New York’s most stylish individuals. This year’s event was no exception – Phillip Gavriel Jewelry was in the company of fashion’s most important brands such as Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, and COACH to name a few. The roster of New York’s celebrity guest appearances included actress Patricia Clarkson, 2019 Emmy winner Billy Porter and Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field.
This year’s Fashion for Action took place November 14th – 16th. Phillip Gabriel Maroof attended the opening reception to not only display some of his pieces, but to shop other brands for a good cause. A public sale was held November 15th and 16th at the original Chelsea Thrift Shop. The designer pieces will continue to be sold through the season while they last.
