Eurovet is delighted to have been selected by Project Help Us Give as an honoree at the 2018 H.U.G. Award Gala, and is committed to raising awareness and helping the fundraising efforts for this incredible organization.

The New York-based nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting pediatric treatment and rehabilitation, announced that it will honor intimate apparel industry leaders Eurovet and Robert Vitale, CEO and President of Wacoal America, at the 63rd annual H.U.G. Award Gala.  Marie-Laure Bellon, CEO and President of Eurovet Global, and Raphael Camp, CEO of Eurovet Americas, will accept the H.U.G. Award on behalf of Eurovet.

The HUG Award Gala is an annual fundraising event which celebrates the everyday heroes at Rusk Rehabilitation and Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone: the doctors, therapists, nurses, staff and especially the children.

The H.U.G. Award Gala will take place on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at the luxurious 230 FIFTH PENTHOUSE in New York City. In attendance will be apparel industry executives from the retail, manufacturing and supply sectors. The funds raised will benefit Rusk Rehabilitation’s pediatric programs and other services at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone. To date, the H.U.G. Award Gala has raised more than $7 million for Rusk Rehabilitation and NYU Langone’s children’s programs.

EUROVET is honored to have been chosen as a 2018 HUG Award recipient and hope that you’ll consider giving to this worthwhile cause – whether by becoming a gala sponsor, purchasing tickets to attend, placing a journal ad or making a contribution of any size, we thank you in advance for your support!
