Emmy Rossum of Showtime’s “Shameless” has signed on to host Jeffrey cares along with singer and LGBT activist Cyndi Lauper. Fashion Cares was established in 1992 in Atlanta, GA by Jeffrey Kalinsky, fashion pioneer and community leader. He launched the first ever Jeffery Fashion Cares event to heighten awareness of the plight of people living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ community.
In 2003, he moved the show and reception to New York to increase awareness and visibility. He brought with it a legacy of community involvement and philanthropy. In 10 years, the event has raised well over $4 million for LGBT and supporting youth charities in New York City.
