The official kick-off to the fall social season, Jeffrey Fashion Cares was founded by Jeffrey Kalinsky, arbiter of style and creator of two namesake boutiques in Atlanta and Manhattan. This year, Kalinsky will once again join Event Chairs Lila Hertz, Jeffrey McQuithy and Louise Sams in producing an unforgettable evening filled with philanthropy and fashion. Last year’s sold-out event raised $700,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF). In its history, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has grown into one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country.
Jeffrey Fashion Cares will once again be held at Phipps Plaza Phipps Plaza at 3500 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, GA 30326.
