Determined to support a new approach to care and treatment for patients, Donna Karan will host, Urban Zen Initiative, a ten day Well-Being Forum at the Stephan Weiss Studio, 711 Greenwich Street, NYC, from May 14th to 24th.
Donna Karan and Sonja Nuttall chair this super chic wellness event, while co-chairs include notables such as Dr. Frank Lipman, Dr. Woodson Merrell, Christy Turlington, Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee. Vice-chairs include Graydon Carter, Michael J. Fox, Evelyn Lauder, Anna Wintour, Christina Ong, Katie Couric, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Ingrid Sischy, Sandy Brant, Diane Von Furstenberg and Kenneth Cole...to name a few.
Hobnobbing with celebs at Urban Zen does not come cheap as single event tickets go for $1,000, $400 for Zen Mediation Day (May 3rd) and $100 for yoga, tai chi and qigong classes. However 50% of the tickets will be made available on a complimentary basis to qualified health care professionals who could otherwise not attend (due to its high cost). The committee and its chairs are footing the bill for the whole event but the fee, does not go right into Donna Karen's pocket, 100% of all profits will go to pilot programs that arise from the workshops and other wellness initiatives with established charities.
