K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Inc., the newly merged non-profit organization that has provided more than $1 billion in new product donations to individuals and families affected by poverty and tragedy, recognized three top leaders from fashion, real estate and entertainment at the Eighth Annual Women In Industry Luncheon (WIIL) June 3 at The Pierre Hotel in New York.

New York television personality Jessica Abo again served as mistress of ceremonies at the fundraiser event to honor Celeste Gudas, CEO and founder of 24 Seven Inc., a prominent executive search firm; Deidre Quinn, president and co-founder of Lafayette 148 New York, a leading fashion design company; and Patti Buckner, a vice president in the Apparel & Accessories, Licensing Division at Warner Bros.

As our first major event post-merger, we are very happy to share this historic moment with these three inspirational women who are undeniably leaders in their field,” said “Their stories prove that real success is founded on not only excellence in business or breaking glass ceilings, but also on the kindness and generosity of helping others.”
