The Real Housewives Benefit Auction is the brainchild of Real Housewives of Miami cast member and Celebrity Chef Ana Quincoces. Ana has friends and family on the front lines fighting COVID-19 and she wanted to find a way to help them get the supplies and resources they needed to keep them safe. While looking through her closet, Ana came across her Housewives of Miami reunion dress. That's when the idea of the auction came to her. So she called a few of her Housewives friends and was overwhelmed with the support. Within a few weeks, donated dresses started arriving from all over the country to Ana's home. Her sister Housewives from Miami, New York, Orange County, Beverly Hills, New Jersey and more sent their reunion dresses
#FIRSTRESPONDERSFIRST is an initiative created by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Thrive Global, and the CAA Foundation to provide frontline healthcare workers with the health and safety resources they so desperately need as they serve on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic. As many of us in the workforce are being asked to serve public health by stepping back and staying home, one population is being tasked to step forward. Our frontline health workers are the pandemic’s first responders. And they are lacking even rudimentary resources as they risk their own health and endure exhaustion, burnout and many other challenges on our behalf.
All donations are tax-deductible through #FirstRespondersFirst’s 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) .
They’re taking care of us. We need to help take care of them.
