On October 8, Barneys New York joyfully continued its ongoing partnership with Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA), a downtown L.A.-based organization that champions the needs of underserved youth, with a private dinner at the home of Sharon and Mauricio Fe.
Following last year’s glittering gathering at our Beverly Hills flagship, this fourth annual fete became an al fresco affair to support the efforts of HOLA executive director Tony Brown and his team. Now in its 26th year, HOLA provides more than 2,300 local, under-resourced youth with exceptional, free programs in academics, arts and athletics. The organization is unique in the quality of instruction and individual attention it provides, all within a nurturing environment that empowers kids to develop their potential, pursue their education and strengthen their communities.
Notably, HOLA’s four-building campus in L.A.’s Rampart District is a home away from home for thousands of kids, ages 6 to 24. Here, they are exposed to a wide array of experts including artists, executives, chefs, athletes, engineers and counselors who commit themselves to providing programs of the highest quality, giving kids the best chance to become successful in life.
To commemorate this inspiring cause, Barneys New York invited a diverse crowd of do-gooders—including actors Olivier Martinez and Jennifer Tilly, designers Irene Neuwirth and Nak Armstrong, philanthropist Brooke Garber Neidich, and Prince Carl-Ferdinand and Princess Elna-Margret—to dine under the stars in yet another glorious celebration.
