Based in New Milford, Connecticut, HTCNE provides free surgical, dental and medical treatment to children in need, around the corner and around the world. Teams of dedicated surgeons, physicians, dentists, nurses and medical technicians contribute their extraordinary skills to these efforts in the United States and abroad. Healing the Children Northeast’s missions have been to China, Vietnam, Thailand, Peru, Colombia, India, and Brazil to name a few. HTCNE has treated over 42,000 children who had nowhere else to turn.
The event will be held at The New Yorker Hotel, 481 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10001 on Thursday, September 5th through Sunday, September 8th, 2013. Representatives of HTCNE will be available to provide additional information about upcoming missions and accept donations. A silent auction is planned.
Now in its 18th season, Couture Fashion Week is an exclusive event showcasing runway fashion shows by exceptional couture and luxury designers for an audience of upscale consumers, invited VIPs, and selected high-end store buyers. The multi-day event presents diverse and exquisite collections from around the world. There will also be exhibits of luxury products/services and fine art, receptions, after parties, VIP dinners, and world-class entertainment. Hundreds of spectators are expected to attend during the event, as well as press coverage reaching millions worldwide.
