Selita Ebanks Steps up to Support New Yorkers for Children
The unfashionable rainy weather did nothing to stop a bevy of fashionable people from attending the invite only private Salvatore Ferragamo shopping event to benefit the New Yorkers for Children. Hosted by Chiara Ferragamo, Maggie Betts, Natalia Echavarria, Julie Macklowe and W magazine’s own Karla Martinez, the charitable soiree offered guests the opportunity to shop at the Ferragamo store and a sneak peek at the Resort 2011 collection. Guests enjoyed cocktails, food and dancing thanks to the tunes of FAB! favorite D.J. Kiss.
At the fete we spotted a dashing, Selita Ebanks and former foster child, chatting with friends, making the rounds and enjoying the evening. Her cool vibe at the evenings event was not without a good reason, the Victoria Secret angel is a big supporter of New Yorkers for Children, the beauty revealed to Stylist, “Not only do they provide scholarships, but they also provide mentoring and support for these young people. The opportunities will always be there for these children, but we have to make sure that, financially, we support them. They need that support and that push so that they can be successful, regardless of their past.”
The party was such a success that Ferragamo decided to extend its support for New Yorkers For Children and will donate a percentage of sales through October 22nd to the charity. Proceeds will benefit youth in foster care in New York City. Just stop at the Salvatore Ferragamo Flagship (655 Fifth Avenue at 52nd Street) and make sure to mention “NYFC” so have your purchase used to benefit NYFC.
