Jeffrey Fashion Cares was established in 1992 in Atlanta, GA, by Jeffrey Kalinsky, fashion pioneer and community leader. He launched the first-ever Jeffrey Fashion Cares event to heighten awareness of the plight of people living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ community.
When Jeffrey brought his fashion show and reception benefit to New York in 2003, he brought with it a legacy of community involvement and philanthropy. In just 8 years, the event has raised almost $4 Million for LGBT and LGBT youth charities here in New York City. And each year, Jeffrey Fashion Cares attracts and hosts an A-List guest-list of socially-minded luminaries including philanthropists, top celebrities, famous socialites, fashion executives and designers, international marketing, sales, and banking executives, media executives and editors, well-known models, stars of film, stage, and television, and world-renowned artists.
Over the past 18 years, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has raised nearly $11 million for our communities’ most important charities and non-profit organizations, with 95% of every dollar raised going directly into the coffers of our beneficiaries.
