Variety gathered an intimate group of the entertainment industry’s most philanthropic women who have been selected as Variety’s “Inspiration Impact Honorees.” Through their humanitarian efforts, these women have made a significant difference to their chosen causes. The exclusive luncheon hosted four hundred invite-only guests comprised of entertainment and media insiders, who came to celebrate, support and pay tribute to the philanthropic efforts of these women.
The honorees include actress Glenn Close (for her work with Bring Change2Mind), actresses Lena Dunham (Girls Educational & Mentoring Services – GEMS), Whoopi Goldberg (Figure Skating in Harlem), and Rachel Weisz (The Opportunity Network), as well as TV and social media icon and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West (Children’s Hospital Los Angeles).
Frédérique Constant supports the Power of Women initiative with Variety. As a brand, it has already created a legacy for supporting children and women’s charities, and presented each of the award recipients with a special congratulatory timepiece. In the spirit of giving back, Variety will be auctioning off two additional donated luxury models of the Frederique Constant Ladies Automatic collection, and donating the proceeds the five participating charities on behalf of all event guests.
Peter Stas said: “We are proud to support Variety’s Power of Women events. The passion that Variety has to continually recognize the extraordinary achievements and leadership of women in entertainment and making “Power of Women” a biannual event in New York and LA is definitively helping all those foundations to get awareness. It will for sure improve the well being of many under privileged persons. Frederique Constant is happy to be able to help to make a difference.”
