Fashion Delivers has met its fund-raising goal of $1.3 million, a fact boasted about by founder and chairman Allan Ellinger.

Ellinger, also a senior managing partner of Marketing Management Group, in opening remarks to the attendees of the annual fund-raising event Tuesday night at the American Museum of Natural History, said that despite more than 850 donors of product, “inventories are tighter” and implored those present to help the foundation “build more donor relations.”

The charitable foundation’s mandate is to provide disaster relief wherever needed, and since 2005 it has distributed more than $100 million in men’s and women’s apparel and home furnishings.

This year’s event included a lifetime achievement award to John Pomerantz, former chairman and chief executive officer of Leslie Fay Cos., and the establishment of a new annual honor, The John Pomerantz Leadership Award.

Other honorees this year included Thomas Johnson, chief executive officer at Aéropostale Inc.; Pamela Lifford, executive vice president and general manager at Disney Consumer Products, and Andy Hilfiger, president of marketing at MESH/Star Branding and creative director of Andrew Charles.

Hilfiger’s band The Andrew Charles All-Stars, along with rock legend Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top with vocals by Jimmy Kunes, provided the evening’s entertainment.
