Annual Fundraising Event

“CHARITY MEETS FASHION” IS A BENEFIT EVENT AT NEW YORK CITY’S AFFIRMATION ARTS GALLERY ON DECEMBER 17, 2012, SPONSORED BY THE WILLIAM T. HILLMAN FOUNDATION

“Charity Meets Fashion” will feature both a fashion show and a photography exhibition showcasing Georgian talent. The objective of the event is to raise funds for the purchase of a building in or near Tbilisi. This building will be used to house a school for Georgian children displaced by conflict. A group of individual donors have committed separate sustaining gifts to provide operating funds for the planned school. Affirmation Arts is donating use of the space, which recently hosted a fundraiser for President Obama.

Mariam Kinkladze is the founder of Honor Vitae, a tax-exempt U.S. charity that creates educational and cultural programs for children in conflict zones around the world. John Kluge is the founder of Toilet Hackers, an organization devoted to improving sanitation for the world’s poor.

To that end, our mission is to collaborate with other non-profit sectors that involve engaging educational and cultural enrichment of communities around the world as well as fighting against hunger and injustice.

Toilet Hackers is here to change the scoop on poop. We believe that every child should live past their first birthday, every person should have clean water to drink, and that 100% of humanity should have access to improved sanitation and good hygiene.

Newly renovated Affirmation Arts opened on New York’s west side in 2008. Housing a gallery, studios, and offices, the building provides an anchor to the up and coming arts neighborhood.
