Robin Hood Foundation 2019

This year the Robin Hood Foundation turned into The Game of Thrones.

We had a White Walker that had a fight with Jon Snow and we raised almost 70 MILLION dollars!

The Annual Benefit is the largest fundraising event in the United States

Themed “Robin Hood to the Power of You”, the evening included a concert from Shawn Mendes in coordination with a light show from the Empire State Building, a stand-up set from Sebastian Maniscalco, and surprise performance by Pharrell

Funds raised at the benefit support more than 200 community partners working to fight poverty in New York City

“We set out 31 years ago to fight this problem of poverty and I am proud that we are still attacking it with the same vigor that we did on day one, and with a much bigger army,” said Robin Hood founder Paul Tudor Jones. “Yet again, this city that has given so many of us so much has come together to give back. We had a hell of a night, and raised more money than we did last year — that’s the power of bringing everyone together to do good.”

The Robin Hood benefit is the largest gala raising money to fight poverty in the United States. Donations from the gala account for the majority of Robin Hood’s annual operating budget. Thanks to the generosity of Robin Hood’s Board which covers its operating costs, 100 percent of the funds raised tonight will go directly to Robin Hood’s more than 200 community partners who run on-the-ground programs to fight poverty across New York City. “Tonight we came together to give the poverty fight what it needs,” said Robin Hood CEO Wes Moore. “These are vulnerable times, 42 percent of New Yorkers have experienced poverty at some point over the past three years. The exponential impact of Robin Hood’s work has never been more important, and I am so proud to lead this community of caring and impact that brings together school teachers and portfolio managers, accountants and social workers.”

Guests entered the event through a hallway lined with 7,000 backpacks donated by Spreetail filled with school supplies – which will be donated to students in need through Robin Hood’s community partners. The evening program highlighted one the community partners, Relay Graduate School of Education, which empowers the next generation of educators to achieve success by working directly in low-income communities while earning their masters degree and building lasting connections within the communities they serve. Robin Hood helped found Relay in 2007, making it the first graduate school of education created in New York in the past 80 years.

Yasha Morgan, a KIPP NYC graduate and 8th grade science teacher who went to Relay and now teaches in the classroom he attended, spoke from the stage saying, “None of us would be here without the communities that raised us. We are not independent. We are interdependent. I didn’t find success on my own. You didn’t find success on your own. No one finds success on their own. Someone invested in you. Now you owe it to be the pillars of someone else’s success.”

Entertainment included a performances by Shawn Mendes, comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, who was introduced by Gayle King. Kenan Thompson introduced Pharrell who gave a surprise performance of his hit songs “Happy” and “Freedom”. Eli Manning along with the Robin Hood Teen Council introduced Shawn Mendes who performed his new single “If I Can’t Have You” in coordination with a music-to-light show from the Empire State Building in partnership with iHeartMedia. The Teen Council is a community of students who meet monthly to learn about tangible ways to fight poverty. Shawn Mendes also held a post-gala concert for benefit attendees and Arrow members of The Forest.

Data from Robin Hood’s Poverty Tracker — a unique representative survey of households in New York City oe systems, structures, and the narratives that hold and keep people back.

The organization, founded in 1988, unveiled a new strategic vision at the 2019 No City Limits conference in February which will focus on lifting households in New York City from poverty measurably and sustainably so New Yorkers can achieve economic stability.

About Robin HoodFounded in 1988, Robin Hood finds, fuels, and creates the most impactful and scalable solutions lifting families out of poverty in New York City, with models that can work across the country. Robin Hood invests nearly $120 million annually to provide legal services, housing, meals, workforce development training, education programs, and more to families in poverty in New York City. Robin Hood tracks every program with rigorous metrics, and since Robin Hood’s Board of Directors covers all overhead, 100 percent of every donation goes directly to the poverty fight.

Marillyn Hewson CEO of the YEAR 2018

I just love working for strong, smart powerful women and that is exactly who Marillyn Hewson is.

A woman Like Marillyn makes you stand a little bit taller.

If there was one executive determined not to let politics get in the way of business this year, it was Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson. She deftly deflected a string of tweet attacks from President Trump—the Commander-in-Chief of Lockheed’s largest customer—by vowing to cut the cost of the company’s new F-35 fighter jets and to create 1,800 U.S. jobs. Hewson then reaped the benefits of Trump’s $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia, securing contracts worth a quarter of that total. The company’s sales are on track to grow 7% in 2017. (Hewson also remained on Trump’s now-disbanded manufacturing council when many of her peers resigned this summer.) Lockheed stockholders, meanwhile, have been well rewarded, earning an 81% total return over the past three years and 28% so far in 2017.

 

Congratulations to a WOMAN making CEO in a mans world!

Stevie Wonder "Dream Still lives"

I'm so very proud of this piece that I did for Stevie Wonder. I did most of the artists in New York City, so I am not claiming I did all of them as most were shot at their studios & in LA.

Please click on the link below.

The message is what matters!

“On April 4th, 1968 at 7:05 p.m. Central Time, Dr. King’s life was cut tragically short.  50 years later a need for his dream to be fulfilled is far greater than ever.  This is precisely why, the dream still lives. 

Please create and post your own Dream Still Lives video with #DreamStillLives.  Spread love...spread hope.

Natalie Cole

A friend found this picture of Natalie Cole when I did her hair & makeup for the week to sing with "Countess Luann" for New York Housewives.

Natalie's voice was that of an angel… Luann's not so much.

When they both sang together, clearly you knew who was classically trained.

Natalie has ALWAYS been a pro to work with & I will miss her very much.

In this picture we went through 8 different red lipsticks to match her dress :)

She was so stunning that night.

Out of all her problems, she showed up on time & was a true class acts.

RIP Natalie Cole!

Comedy Central Upfront 2016

If your laughing most of the day at work you must be working at Comedy Central :)

Comedy Central had it's first "Upfront" at Town Hall in NYC and all the funnest stars in show biz showed up….no kidding!

They Had The "Broad City" ladies IIana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson there along with Amy Schumer.

"Workaholics" Adam DeVine and Blake Anderson.

Jason Sudekis was super sweet to work with as well as Tim Robinson and Natasha Leggero.

Chris Hardwick from "Talking Dead" was so silly backstage… he made everyone get in the picture (here posted) as a selfie like Ellen did at the Oscars.

Oh yes, everyone had a smile on their face this day and if you didn't there had to be something seriously wrong with you :D

Best day!!

Sam Shepard "Buried Child"

In true form Sam Shepard does not disappoint.

I was fortunate enough to be able to work on his play the final week it was on Broadway in NYC. 

This of course is not a "feel good" play but the acting was outstanding.

With Ed Harris as the lead how could it have not been spectacular ?

Taissa Farmiga from "American Horror" was one of the leads as well. She took the play to a whole new level.  Poor thing on the last day she got a cold.  She said her character took so much out of her.  You can totally see that she put her whole heart and soul into it.

The Cast:

Taissa Farmiga, Ed harris, Amy Madigan, Larry Pine, Rich Sommer, Paul Sparks, Nat Wolff

I love Broadway and everything about it.  You can shut off your brain and for 2 hours be taken away by the play.

This was thrilling!
