NEW YORK — The UJA-Federation of New York’s Fashion Division honored MMG’s Allan Ellinger, Randa Accessories’ Mel Goldfeder and JJP Advisory’s John Pomerantz Tuesday night at its annual spring reception.
During their remarks, each executive emphasized their philanthropic efforts instead of their professional ones. Ellinger was celebrated for chairing Fashion Delivers in 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which has since donated more than $175 million worth of products to those in need, including people trying to reenter the workforce. Ellinger said, “I believe each of us has a responsibility to leave our space and time better than we found it.”
