Each year, well-dressed and warm-hearted supporters of God’s Love We Deliver gather friends of Michael Kors for the Golden Heart Awards. This year’s soiree honored stars Scarlett Johansson and Ben Platt for their work on behalf of a wide range of causes closest to the mission of GLWD, including AIDS, cancer, food, hunger, and inclusion. This fiscal year alone, the nonprofit will cook and deliver more than 4 million medically tailored meals to clients, free of charge, marking a 50% increase in clients served from two years ago.

“When I think back to the beginning, God’s Love We Deliver was truly a small, grassroots organization, starting with one woman delivering meals. There weren’t a lot of options for people who were ill during the AIDS pandemic, and God’s Love We Deliver was always there on the ground. Fast forward all these years later, during the pandemic, and they still manage to grow their clientele and never turn anyone in need away,” Michael Kors told Vogue.

Atop the 6th floor of The Glasshouse, guests overlooked sweeping skyline views of Manhattan’s West Side. Inside, cocktail hour was transformed into the iconic ’80s-era-inspired New York restaurant Indochine, with dim red lighting amidst tall palm plants, leather-clad dancers choreographed by Nick Laughlin, a Vietnamese-French style passed canapé selection, and an upbeat dance playlist by DJ Lina Bradford to match the ambiance.
