Jeffrey Fashion Cares to Honor Jordan Roth

Jeffrey Fashion Cares, the annual fund-raiser thrown by Jeffrey Kalinsky, will honor Jordan Roth at this year’s benefit.
Now in its 16th year, the annual event will be held on Wednesday, April 10, at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. The evening aims to raise awareness surrounding the people who live with HIV and AIDS, support LGBTQ youth and challenge discrimination against the LGBTQ community. Over the past 15 years of Jeffrey Fashion Cares’ existence, the event has raised a cumulative $ 6 million to $ 7 million as of 2018.
President of the Jujamcyn Theaters Jordan Roth is slated to receive the Jeffrey Fashion Cares Community Leadership Award. His theaters have been integral in telling queer stories by hosting productions like “Kinky Boots” and “Falsettos.” He also produced “Angels in America,” and received a Tony Award for it.
Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy will emcee. The athlete, who won the silver medal in slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, was one of two openly gay American competitors who walked in the Winter Olympics opening ceremony — the other, figure skater Adam Rippon. Kenworthy has yet another connection to the entertainment world: He has a role in the

Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta Raises $800,000 for Area Organizations

MOTHER KNOWS BEST: The 26th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares event at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta on Monday night raised more than $ 800,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund and the Medical University of South Carolina. The tally since the event’s inception: more than $ 15 million raised for the beneficiaries.
Jeffrey Kalinsky, who operates two stores in Manhattan and Atlanta, unveiled a third unit in Palo Alto, Calif., on Wednesday.
“It’s a 12-minute runway show preceded by a live auction, which is preceded by a cocktail hour,” said Kalinsky, who admitted that he’s perfected a formula for keeping the event moving apace. “All that happens before we get seated. We keep the welcome remarks brief so we can get people out of there without having to listen to speeches. The evening is really all about fun and fashion.”
Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, Dior, Saint Laurent Paris, Céline, Sacai, Givenchy and Calvin Klein were among the designers shown. “We had four looks at the end of the show by a designer, Edda, who’s based in Norway and does these beautiful cotton-printed dresses. We found her at the LVMH Prize showroom,” Kalinsky said. “It’s really a good opportunity to showcase a number of younger designers.

Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2018 to Honor Staff Sgt. Catherine Schmid

Jeffrey Fashion Cares, the annual benefit thrown by Jeffrey Kalinsky set for April 11, will be hosted by Judith Light and honor Staff Sgt. Catherine Schmid.
The event, which features both a silent and live auction, followed by a runway show of men’s fashion, raises money and awareness for HIV/AIDS and supports various LGBT charities. As in the past, this year’s function will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, Hetrick-Martin Institute and Lambda Legal. It will once again take place at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.
The evening’s honoree will be Schmid, a 12-year U.S. Army veteran and a key plaintiff in the lawsuit challenging the ban of transgender individuals serving in the military. Schmid was one of five members of the armed services and three hoping to enlist who filed a suit, brought by Lambda Legal, against the Trump administration’s ban on military service by transgender people in August.
Light is a Tony and Emmy winner who most recently appeared on “Transparent” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: An American Crime Story.”

New York Cares and The Fashion Foundation Help New Yorkers in Need

‘TIS THE SEASON: More than halfway to its goal of collecting 125,000 donated coats, this year’s annual New York Cares Coat Drive has less than a week to go.
New Yorkers can drop off coats at multiple locations including the group’s West 31st Street warehouse, any New York Police Department precinct, all Queens library branches and Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station through Dec. 31. Those who don’t have jackets to give can text “coat” to 41444 to donate money that will be used by the nonprofit to buy and deliver coats. The city has at least 1.7 million people living below the poverty line including 60,000 who are without permanent housing, according to a New York Cares spokeswoman.
The group has collected and donated 1.8 million coats to New Yorkers in need over the past 29 years. This year’s requests from shelters, social service agencies and schools is an increase compared to last year’s tally of 109,000 coats.
Another local group, The Fashion Foundation, recently wrapped up another charitable initiative. Founder Amanda Munz helped to brighten the holidays for 100 students in three different Brooklyn schools by arranging for each of them to receive a complementary gift-laden backpack.

“Entourage” the Movie – Who Cares?

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper
“Entourage” (Warner Brothers)

“Entourage” is a movie made for the fans of the popular HBO series of the same name. For those, like me, who never saw an episode this is a movie full of mystery. What is the basis for the plot; who are these actors; and more than that who are these characters and why should audiences care about them. I didn’t know them going in and I didn’t know or care about them as I was leaving.

As far as I can gather Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) is a young actor who has had some success in Hollywood. He now lives and works in Hollywood and has brought some of his good pals from back east to town with him. These include Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and his brother Johnny (Kevin Dillon). They make up his entourage. Ari (Jeremy Piven) is the man who discovered him and he is now running a Hollywood studio and wants Vincent to star in his next big movie.

Vincent agrees as long as he can direct the film and Eric can produce it. Johnny must also have a good role in the movie while Turtle is along for the ride. Larsen McCredle (Billy Bob Thornton) and his son Travis (Haley Joel Osment) are the money men behind the film. When the film goes over budget Ari has to try to wheedle some more money from McCredle.

While all of this is going on the audience gets a look at what goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood. It basically looks like Beach Party Bingo with bikinied girls making up most of the cast. To make it authentic people/actors such as Liam Neeson, Kelsey Grammer, Mark Rubin, Gary Busey, Bob Saget and Jon Favreau pop up for a quick hello.

The subplots involve Turtle trying to get a date with Rhonda Rousey. Eric is coping with possibly two pregnancies. Johnny is trying to be more than a joke as an actor. And Ari is trying to control his anger. All four don’t add up to a smidgen of something interesting.

Grenier is one of the least charismatic actors I have seen on screen since Jake Gyllenhaal tromped through “The Prince of Persia”. Dillon is totally unlikeable as Johnny but that’s okay because I think he was intended to be unlikeable. Billy Bob is once more playing what we think of as “the Billy Bob Thornton” character, while Osment looks like he would enjoy seeing some “dead people” if that would liven things up.

The only actor to make a good impression is Piven as Ari Gold. He is in totally manic mood and it gives the film the little energy it has. I would happily go see a movie about Ari Gold if they would leave all those other characters at home.

The movie is rated R for profanity and nudity.

The fans of the TV series must have been a loud group because they got a slick movie made that takes up supposedly where the series left off. Here’s to their success in getting it done. But now that it is made, how are you going to sell it to the rest of the country?

I scored “Entourage” a crowded 4 out of 10.
