FROM FACTOR TO AUTHOR: Gary Wassner, president of factoring firm Hilldun Corp., is donating 50 percent of the proceeds from “Isabella Cucharella, Fashion Designer Extra Ordinaire,” a children’s picture book, to the CFDA Fashion Incubator Program. The digital version can be downloaded from iTunes/iBook for $3.99. In addition, Wassner, who is also a science fiction author, is donating $25,000 to kick off the endowment fund. Wassner said he made the decision because the “endowment could really help the program.” The CFDA said Wassner is a “tremendous asset” to the program as both a mentor and now funder.
