Susan Taylor exquisitely invited a few of her closest friends to her annual National Cares Mentoring Gala. The Organization that prides themselves on helping the underserved in our community–our youth.
The goal of this gala is to have those with more access to assist those in need. The honorees were some of the industries greats– Latanya Richardson Jackson who received the 2019 North Star Award along with Cheryl McKissack Daniel and Deryl McKissack.
The festivities took place at the fabulous Ziegfeld Ballroom in the center of town in New York City. The services were impeccable, the food well plated and quite delicious. The appetizers and spirits kept flowing all night as the attendees mingled and engaged with one another.
The runway fashion was beautifully presented by The High School Of Fashion Industries students. With industry support, they have launched the Fashion Community Cares Scholarship Fund.
I could not help but wonder how magnificent this place could be for a large wedding for those who simply want to invite, EVERYONE.
So as we here at World Bride Magazine like to remind you, if you and beloved have all the things you need for your new home and lives together and don’t wish to have your guest give you empty and meaningless gifts. Why not have them donate to one of your favorite responsible charitable foundations. We recommend you look into the National Cares Mentoring Movement.
