Francisco's Invitation & J.F.C. History
Francisco has been on the scene for many of the Jeffrey Fashion Cares events beginning as far back as 2010 when the charity hosted 35% more people than the previous year on the historic Intrepid Aircraft carrier.
The event consists of a cocktail reception with a luxury silent auction, an exciting live auction and a men’s fashion show featuring 40+ of the industry’s top models. Francisco Lachowski invited people to join him at the event via his Instagram page.

LGBTQ – WE’VE COME A LONG WAY, BUT…
28 states still have no express sexual orientation anti-discrimination law
and 31 have no express gender identity anti-discrimination law.
This year, 50,000 young gay men will become infected with HIV right here in the United States.
Over 30% of LGBTQ youth suffer physical violence at the hands of a family member after coming out,
and nearly one-third are thrown out of their homes because of their sexual orientation.
