The national non-profit Delivering Good, held its annual gala at Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City. The event, attended by 400 people was very successful raising over $1.3 Million Dollars for children, adults, and families facing poverty and hardship.
“An Evening of Delivering Good” honored three of the organization’s partners for their contributions to communities in need. The Ralph Lauren Corporation was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, SAP the Inaugural Innovation Award, and Tanger Outlets the Impact Award.
Master of Ceremonies and Delivering Good Board Member, Ken Downing made the evening very entertaining. His humor and enthusiasm translated to the whole ballroom and we had a chance of speaking to him on the pink carpet.
“The greatest impact Delivering Good can make is by assisting families in need through our local partners. The positive force of families, whether born or chosen, can lay a solid foundation for a person to achieve their dreams,” stated Downing.
The evening’s theme The Power of Family, truly presented what this non profit is all about by bringing real life stories of once at-risk children, families and individuals who were positively impacted by the great work of the organization and its honorees. Delivering good changed their lives forever and now, through Delivering Good hey continue to help others.

And thanking you for the opportunity that you’ve given us and our employees to reach out and help people who are in need.” said David Lauren, Chief Branding and Innovation Officer & Vice Chairman of the Board at Ralph Lauren.
