Glamorous. Giving. Intimate. Fun.
This is Elaine’s personal and business philosophy and she is living the GGIF in New York, spending time at the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club, an organization that serves more than 5,000 children at four Clubhouses and three school sites in some of New York City’s most disadvantaged communities.
From spending time at the Boys and Girls Club Clubhouse to being honored at the Purses & Pursenalities fundraiser luncheon at the Metropolitan Club NYC, Elaine is spreading her message of giving.
The instant Elaine landed in New York, she headed directly to the Clubhouse for an experience she will always cherish.
“The visit was full of joy,” Elaine says. “The children were engaged, totally at peace and secure, and filled with the purest sense of happiness.”
That happiness spilled over to the Metropolitan Club NYC Wednesday, where Elaine was honored, alongside designers Laura Vela and Yiliana Yepez.
More than 250 people attended the luncheon that auctioned off designer handbags, raising more than $90,000 for the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club.
Elaine rounded out the day with a shopping stop at Scully & Scully with friend and What2WearWhere.com creator Karen Klopp.
