Philanthropy and retail came together Thursday night at CoachArt’s fund-raiser and dinner at the Fairmont Hotel, where the children’s nonprofit honored Alibaba’s Jennifer Kuperman Johnson as its Heart & Humanity Champion.
Attendees hailed from finance, technology and retail, including several of the honoree’s friends and family members. The festivities kicked off with drinks and mingling before segueing into the Fairmont’s Grand Ballroom, where classic cuisine met classic architecture. Guests enjoyed a three-course dinner of hand-pulled mozzarella salad, grilled chicken or vegetarian gnocchi, and chocolate tart or vanilla-bean creme brulée. The tables surrounded the stage, where a fun, lively lineup of speakers and heartwarming videos spotlighted the children at the heart of CoachArt.

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
As Zachary Quinto’s impactful run as Harold in “The Boys in the Band” comes to a close this weekend, he tells @leighen , "People have been really connected to the themes and the ideas in the show...It’s also really reflected back to audiences how similar our experiences are today. And I think it also, in a way, transcends gay identity as well.” #wwdeye #zacharyquinto (📸 @jgreenery )
