Meet Women Helping Women (WHW) Hamptons committee member Gabby Karan De Felice. De Felice is a native New Yorker and owner of the famed restaurant, Tutto il Giorno, with locations in Tribeca and Southampton. She resides in New York City and East Hampton with her Italian born husband, daughter, and son. De Felice took time to share why Women Helping Women, Voss Foundation, and access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene are important to her.
“I find it incredulous that not everyone has access to clean water,” says De Felice. The fact that there are women in Sub-Saharan Africa who worry daily about finding a source of clean water for their kids or during pregnancy, or that young girls drop out of school once they hit puberty due to lack of sanitation, really saddens me. But at the same time becoming aware of those issues spurred me to help make a difference by getting involved with Voss Foundation. The name says it all – Women Helping Women – when we come together we have the ability to affect positive change.”
We are so grateful to Gabby and all our supporters. Learn more about Women Helping Women, and click here to see the invitation and join Gabby and Voss Foundation in the Hamptons on August 1st to honor model and philanthropist Georgie Badiel.
