Affair: Variety's Power of Women: New York Luncheon
When: Friday, April 21, 2017
Hot Spot: Cipriani 42nd St, NYC
Deets: Variety's annual luncheon gathering an intimate group of the entertainment industry’s most philanthropic women, who are selected as Variety’s “Inspiration Impact Honorees.” Through their humanitarian efforts, these women have made a significant difference to their chosen causes.
Variety’s global media presence continues to expand and the “Power of Women” platform is one of the brand’s most prestigious honors. To continually recognize the extraordinary achievements and leadership of women in entertainment, Variety has made “Power of Women” a biannual event in New York and LA. Variety is excited to announce a new collaboration between its Variety Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) for both the Power of Women: New York and Los Angeles events, where EIF will be matching Variety’s charitable donation to all of the honorees’ charities at both events.
The exclusive luncheon hosted four hundred invite-only guests comprised of entertainment and media insiders, who came to celebrate, support and pay tribute to the philanthropic efforts of these incredible women. The afternoon included VIP pre- and post-ceremony cocktail receptions designed to engage guests with the participating charities and brand sponsors.
