On Wednesday night, God’s Love We Deliver staged its annual Golden Heart Awards at Skylight Soho, where it honored Carolina Herrera for her contributions to the charity, and — to mark its 25th anniversary — the volunteers who prepare and deliver the meals the organization provides to the sick. One of the charity’s more recognizable delivery persons accepted on behalf of all the volunteers.

The actress performed a surgical strike of an appearance at the event. She arrived shortly before her remarks and left after her stage time. Other attendees included Blaine Trump, Adam Lippes, Lauren Remington Platt, John Demsey, Alan Cumming and Calvin Klein, who dined alongside Herrera.
Dinner committee member Sandra Lee, a longtime supporter of the charity, gave the night’s introductory remarks. Her appearance was a bit of precipitous timing, as the night before in the same space, her boyfriend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, accepted the Huffington Post’s Game Changer of the Year award.
“No,” the Food Network host said with a laugh when asked if the pair always followed each other. “Just a special week.”

“Yeah, today on my photo shoot I ordered Chinese,” she said.
