Culture for One Hosts Inspirational Luncheon

This past week the phenomenal organization Culture for One hosted a special luncheon to honor those making a difference in foster care.

Board member, Eileen Schein, and Board Chair Janet Kagan opened the event at Il Gattopardo with touching remarks dedicated to the volunteers and children of the program.

Guests enjoyed the delightful meal that was followed by an inspirational speech about the power of art and fashion used in the program to help guide young men and women in a positive direction. Jessica Glasscock of The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art spoke of her own personal journey and mentorship. The room was moved by her touching words, as well as by those of program participant Palvi Manhas.

Culture for One inspires New York City children living in foster care by providing free cultural experiences and exposure to a broader world through mentorships and art excursions. Programs are supported by caring volunteers who serve as positive role models who offer youth attention and encouragement.

Nearly 9,000 children in New York live in foster care, most of which lack opportunities that are critical to developing their own interests and goals. Culture for One programs serve 1,200 children and young adults each year . It is a perfect way to prepare for independent adulthood.
