2nd Annual Gala4Good
05/19/2011 - By New York, NY

Last night at Industria Studios photographer and artist Andrea Tese co-hosted the 2nd
Annual Gala 4 Good with the organization’s founder, Melissa Kushner.

The Gala featured a photography exhibit by Ms. Tese, silent and live auctions of Tese’s work as well as a raffle to raise funds to benefit Goods for Good’s Tailor-in-Training and capacity building programs.
Melissa Kushner and Andrea Tese made remarks explaining the pressing needs of the children being served by the Goods for Good. The jubilant crowd excitedly took part in the live auction announced by the charismatic CK Swett, who Ms. Tese cheekily dubbed their “Guy for Good.” Swett donned a gold cloak to make his theatrical entrance and got the crowd on their feet, selling three large-scale photographs by Andrea Tese.
Bidders in the front row included luminaries from the worlds of fashion, media, politics, finance, real estate, and royalty: Mario and Matilda Cuomo, HRH Princess Tatiana of Greece, Behati Prinsloo, Valerie Boster, Natalia and Sebastian Echavarria, Marissa Sackler, Coralie and Dennis Paul, Eleonore Marchand, Chessy Wilson, Kipton Cronkite, Soraya Dorabi, Brad Livingstone Black, David Gruning, Marc Kushner (Founder of Architizer), Lucia Tait, Caroline Owens, Be Inthavong and Nazy Nazhand.
