Lovers Unite!

KULE is proud to support the LGBTQ+ community, and we are especially proud of our ongoing partnership with Ali Forney Center, whose mission is to protect LGBTQ+ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. Last month we were a sponsor of their annual gala, and this past week hosted a Pride Event at our Brooklyn store, donating 20% of all sales from that evening to AFC. Both events remind us of the importance of Ali Forney Center’s work and how much we love our community, whose dedication and support make a difference. Read below for some highlights from both events in support of Ali Forney Center.

KULE is proud to be a sponsor of Ali Forney Center’s A Place At the Table annual gala

Early last month, Ali Forney Center hosted nearly 1,000 people at Cipriani Wall Street to celebrate its annual A Place At The Table Gala. It was the Center’s most successful event to date, with a fundraising total of $1.8 million. We are proud to have been a sponsor of the event and grateful to our KULE friends for coming to support with us.

Attendees wore bold fashion to the gala, with no shortage of sequins, crystals, and color. We like to think the KULE table showed up, too πŸ™‚.

The KULE table showed up to support and certainly came dressed for the evening. Nikki Kule, Jim Kuerschner, and Elizabeth Tamkin from the KULE team were joined by Jonathan Kratz, Chloe King, Sam Todd, Brian Solis, Lauren Wilson, Stefan Beckman, and Kris Togias. We thank each and every one of them for coming to support.

Just last week, we also hosted our Pride Event at KULE Brooklyn, donating 20% of all sales from that evening to Ali Forney Center.

We will also continue to donate $20 from each tee and $10 from each hat sold online and in-store from the new Pride collection, a collaboration with illustrator Grace Miceli.

You will always meet great people at a KULE party! Our community is the best, and it knows how to have a good time. With some fuel (sips and sweets) and lots of KULE (it’s a ryhme!), we were ready to party for Pride.

If you couldn’t make the event, you can shop online and in-store!

Thank you to Ali Forney Center for its hard work. We ask that you donate directly to Ali Forney Center so they can continue making a difference.
