(NEW YORK, NY, FEBRUARY 2021) — Forty One Madison, Gift For Life and Adam Glassman, creative director of Oprah and 2021 honorary chair for Gift For Life, have teamed up to host a virtual #TableTogether benefit for God’s Love We Deliver, an organization that cooks and home-delivers medically tailored meals to New Yorkers living with serious illness who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves, during the upcoming New York Tabletop Market® April 13-16.
“As the 2021 honorary chair for Gift For Life, I’m pleased to be leading the effort on a series of hunger relief events this year starting with the #TableTogether benefit,” said Glassman. “New York City has been greatly impacted by the pandemic and it’s critical to rally industry friends to support the important missions of organizations like God’s Love We Deliver.”
Glassman and celebrity interior designers Alexa Hampton and Young Huh, will each create a tablescape for bidding in an online auction where 100-percent of proceeds will go directly to God’s Love. Each #TableTogether tablescape will feature a unique entertaining theme– Adam Glassman will create an al fresco garden party, Alexa Hampton will design an upscale dinner party and Young Huh will imagine a modern spring brunch party. A full set of all products on each table will be awarded to its top two bidders. #TableTogether Tablescapes will be available for viewing and bidding online starting Tuesday, April 13. In addition to the auction, donors who make a direct contribution of twenty dollars or more to God’s Love, will be invited to a private virtual meet and greet with Glassman Thursday, April 15.
“It is more important than ever for our community to band together and support those in need and we are thrilled to be working with such devoted and talented partners to fight hunger in our great city,” said Kristi Forbes, director and senior vice president of Forty One Madison.
The auction will kick-off on Monday, April 13 through a livestream broadcast hosted by Glassman. Please find full details around the auction and fundraiser on the #TableTogether event page on the 41Madison.com virtual show hub. Advanced registration is highly recommended.
