Advocates For Children of New York 2011

In the past, Qi has supported Advocates For Children of New York, a non-profit organization that has promoted access to the best education New York can provide for the 1.1 million students in New York City’s public schools. Advocates for Children of New York works to advance systemic reform, empower families and communities, and advocate for educational rights of individual students.

This spring we will celebrate AFC’s 40th Anniversary Benefit on May 10, 2011 at the Rubin Museum of Art. Our founder, Jean Kolloff, is a member of the event committee and feels strongly about giving back to the community.

Our support for Advocates for Children of New York is longstanding. Qi designed the Give Back and Hope Intarsia Sweaters and donated proceeds to AFC.

We have also held an annual shopping event called “Cashmere for a Cause” that enables our customers to do their holiday shopping while giving back. In the past, these efforts have proven very successful in benefitting AFC.

Qi is looking forward to AFC's 40th Anniversary Benefit and, as always, is happy to be giving back to such a great cause!
