Ilaria Niccolini, founder and owner of FTL MODA, presented a check of $10,000 to Salvatore Snaiderbaur, founder of One City Mission.
“I am truly grateful for the friendship and support that Ilaria Niccolini, her extraordinary team, the sponsors, and all friends and fashion professionals who attended the event, demonstrated towards our work,” said Salvatore Snaiderbaur at the event.
“I will personally deliver the messages of encouragement that many guests of the event have written to our friends who live on the street. Personal and simple gestures have a great power to reawaken the sense of self dignity, in those who live every day the burden of being invisible, if not actually being avoided or despised. Thanks to the very generous financial contribution received, we will be even more capable of being present on the street, to continue support our friends, and especially those women, who live in abandonment and solitude.”
FTL MODA and Promperu, title sponsor of FTL WOMEN ARE POWER, have a history of collaborating on projects focused on promoting the prestigious Alpaca del Peru fiber while supporting actions that give back to their respective communities.
Special ambassadors for FTL WOMEN ARE POWER were Antonio and Roberta Murr, Martina Grottarola, Leonard Lowengrub, Ilana Goor, and Giorgio Ammirabile.
