Yoko Ono is honored for “Imagine There’s No Hunger” campaign in Manhattan

Yoko Ono honored in Manhattan

Lucky Duck meets Yoko Ono, an icon.

I was very lucky to attend a gala last night to celebrate Yoko Ono’s Chapin Humanitarian Award. The plated dinner service, concert, and ceremony took place at Chelsea Piers in New York City, not far from where I live.

The gala dinner supported Ono’s effort to end world hunger

And I was touched to be a part of it. The night Simon and I were out until 3 am singing karaoke in Korea Town, I met a great person who owns the Irish Pub close by (which is voted Best Beer Bar in NYC). His cousin has worked extensively with Yoko and was being honored as well. I was a guest at the event, not a reporter!

I came straight from work and immediately felt guilty for saying, “I’m starving!” as I grabbed a glass of Chardonnay. I really enjoyed learning about WhyHunger and was in complete awe of the passion in the room.

Food is a right, not a privilege. Join us to ensure everyone has access to healthy food and no one goes to bed hungry. – Bill Avres, Executive Director & Co-Founder

Shannon and Geri are new BFFs

The swag bag is generous – I want to share mine

I’m going to keep the full sized bottle of Philosophy 3 in 1 wash, but I have a limited edition “Imagine” teddy bear and Hard Rock t-shirt. If you’re a big Beatles fan (Ricky, you get first dibs!) and are interested in either of these, let me know!
