Didn’t think anything could possibly sound better than a little holiday shopping with a cocktail in hand? How about shopping for a cause, especially a great one like UNICEF? That’s exactly what we did recently at our Seattle and San Francisco stores.

Hosts Jennifer Wong, Elena Marimo Berk, Susanne Caballero, and fellow West Coast shoppers came out to support the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, which raises funds for the organization’s work in child survival and development around the world.

Barneys New York has long been proud to support UNICEF, one of the world’s leading organizations for children. Last year, in fact, CEO Mark Lee (along with COO Daniella Vitale) traveled to Malawi with the organization and was later presented with the Spirit of Compassion Award for his philanthropic efforts at UNICEF’s annual Snowflake Ball. This year’s gala takes place Tuesday, December 2—which may as well be just around the corner. Do you have your ticket yet?
