NEW YORK-The K.I.D.S/Fashion Delivers annual gala fundraiser, which was held at the American Museum of Natural History here, raised $1.8 million in donations.

The gala marked the charitable organization’s 30th anniversary. “Our gala allows us to continue our mission and provide brand new product to children, families, and individuals in need nationwide and abroad,” said Lisa Gurwitch, president and CEO of the organization.

The event also honored Stuart Brister of Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Dow Famulak of Global Brands Group and Shikshya Foundation Nepal’s co-founder, designer Prabal Gurung. Gurung was accompanies by actress Amanda Seyfried, who presented him with his award.

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers has been operating its “Bring It Home” campaign, receiving donations of apparel, housewares and home textiles for disaster victims. Recent efforts here include providing products for victims of the recent floods in South Carolina and of wildfires in northern California.
