12th Annual Wrap to Rap
Remembering Oscar de la Renta
The Directors of New Yorkers For Children mourn the loss and will forever cherish the memory of our beloved fellow Director, Oscar de la Renta. He joined the board soon after the organization was founded in 1996 and brought the children in New York City’s child welfare system to the attention of the fashion industry and his legions of friends. More than any other individual he developed our capacity to raise funds and awareness for New York’s most vulnerable children. For Oscar any child in need was his child, and that compassion led to actions that have changed outcomes for countless young lives. We send our heartfelt sympathy to his loving wife Annette and his children and grandchildren. The world has lost an extraordinary man, and we are grateful for all that he contributed throughout his life.
