FSW is honoring dedicated volunteer Leslie Chang at this year’s STAR Gala on April 25th at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. Not surprisingly, when it came time to arrange an exciting Pre-Party Kickoff Celebration for the event, Leslie volunteered to handle this task and enlisted her friends at Neiman Marcus, who were eager to host a wine and cheese reception and fashion demonstration at 6 pm on Wednesday, April 10th to get Gala attendees excited about the event.
“We wanted to build excitement about the ‘Red Carpet’ theme at our STAR Gala, and Neiman Marcus was happy to host this imaginative pre-party celebration that reinforced the glamorous nature of the Gala,” notes Leslie, who also Chairs FSW’s Junior Board, a group of young professionals residing in Westchester who raise funds and awareness for FSW. The Kickoff event, “Get Your Spring On,” offered Gala attendees some “Red Carpet” fashion ideas and provided several raffle prizes, including a Day of Beauty for two followed by a Spa lunch at Zodiac Restaurant, a $50 Neiman Marcus Gift Card, and an autographed copy of Lee Woodruff’s book, Those We Love Most. Lee is an author and TV host and wife of the emcee for this year’s STAR Gala, ABC correspondent Bob Woodruff.
Even if you weren’t able to attend the pre-party, you can still shop at Neiman Marcus and help FSW. Neiman Marcus will make a donation to FSW based on all purchases made at their store at the Westchester Mall through Sunday, April 14.
