Exclusive Access to Advocate Channel's New York Fashion Week Party
Advocate Channel partnered with Smiletrain to celebrate New York Fashion Week with an unforgettable night of fun, food, and fashion, all to benefit a good cause.
Fashion lovers dined on world-class food provided by New York Prime Beef and The Hummus & Pita Company while our friends at Music Choice provided the soundtrack.
Thirsts were quenched with Bonefish Grill's handcrafted martinis and Status Sparkling Wine offered a taste of celebrity to all attendees.
Naturally, a world-class event like NYFW makes ripples across continents, and experts from Suzhou, China were on hand to offer a new destination once New York's most fashionable week concludes. The modern-meets-classic city, just outside of Shanghai, is 2,500 years old, which means they’ve had plenty of time to craft the perfect guest experience.
Advocate Channel's NYFW Party benefitted Smiletrain, an organization transforming the lives of millions of children by giving them the power of a smile. Both the night and contributing to this great cause put big smiles on the faces of all in attendance.
Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
Millions of children with clefts around the world live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Our sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities.
We use the “teach a man to fish” model focusing on training local doctors to perform cleft repairs in their communities. Those doctors then go on to train other doctors creating a long-term, sustainable system.
Patients see their smile for the first time, parents cry tears of joy, lives and communities are changed forever.
As a result of our efficiency and with the support of our donors and partners around the world, Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than one million children by giving them the power of a smile.
