FORMER U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON TO RECEIVE FIRST-EVER MICHAEL KORS AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING COMMUNITY SERVICE
Michael Kors is pleased to announce that Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be honored with the first-ever Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Service at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards dinner on Wednesday, October 16, 2013.
“I am deeply honored to present Mrs. Clinton with this award that means so much to me,” says Kors. “She is a dedicated and enormously effective humanitarian whose commitment to community service encompasses the whole planet. Thanks to her talent, devotion and unrelenting efforts on behalf of those with much less, she has improved millions of lives and helped lay the foundation for a better, more just world.”
In recognition of the important work of God’s Love We Deliver and the commitment of Michael Kors to help end world hunger, the Seventh Annual Golden Heart Awards dinner is being held on World Food Day. God’s Love We Deliver board members Blaine Trump and Michael Kors will help serve as event co-chairs, together with John Idol, Chairman and CEO of Michael Kors, Jane Lauder, Global President and General Manager of Origins, Ojon, Darphin, and others to be announced.
God’s Love We Deliver will also honor Aerin Lauder, Founder and Creative Director of AERIN and Style and Image Director of Estée Lauder, with the Golden Heart Award for Lifetime Achievement. Jeff Gates and Mike Moran, long-time volunteers and donors, will receive the Golden Heart Award for Outstanding Volunteerism.
The Golden Heart Awards honor the important contributions of individuals, corporations and foundations to the organization’s cause. Funds raised at the event, to be held this year at Spring Studios in New York City, help ensure that no person in the tri-state area suffers the dual crises of hunger and life-altering illness.
