K.I.D.S. Sixth Annual 'Women In Industry' Luncheon at the Plaza Hotel

May 31, 2012

NEW YORK, - The Sixth Anniversary Women In Industry Luncheon was held at The Plaza Hotel on Thursday, May 31, 2012.  Over 400 men and women from industries that support K.I.D.S., including business executives and not-for-profit leaders  attended. 

          For more than 26 years, K.I.D.S. has provided hope and self-esteem to over seventy million children and their families annually that are challenged by poverty, homelessness, domestic abuse, military family service, low literacy, major illness, incarcerated family members and disaster survival.  Made possible by the generous donations of outstanding manufacturers and retailers, K.I.D.S. distributes the brand new children's products through its network of nearly one thousand social service agencies across the U.S. and around the world.

          This year, the luncheon keynote address was given by Kathy Ireland, CEO and Chief Designer at Kathy Ireland Worldwide.  A former model and actress, Ms. Ireland is highly regarded for her business leadership, as well as her devotion to numerous philanthropic causes, including YMCA, Dream Foundation, and others. 

          Named as 2012 K.I.D.S. Women of Achievement along with Ms. Ireland were Sharon John and Sandy Wax.  Ms. John is President of Stride Rite Children's Group, a tireless, dedicated and compassionate leader who has helped bestow pride, confidence and a sense of self-worth to children each year.   Sandy Wax is President and General Manager of PBS KIDS Sprout, the first 24-hour online and on demand TV preschool destination for kids 2-5 and their parents and caregivers.  Ms. Wax is an equally devoted philanthropist through her support of Cradles to Crayons and Please Touch Children's Museum in Philadelphia.  

          More than 1,000 manufacturers, retailers and licensees in the children's business, as well as sustaining partnerships with corporations, foundations and individual donors provide critical support for K.I.D.S. each year. 

          Because of K.I.D.S.' dedicated volunteers, the organization  maintains a 2 1/2% overhead that enables 97.5% to go directly to those in need of assistance.  That is why K.I.D.S. is listed in the Forbes 200 Top Charities and the national Better Business Bureau's top charity rankings for the last four years, and has received a four-star rating for the last five years from Charity Navigator.
