Before You Go . . .
The David Lynch Foundation recently announced that its special International Women of Vision 2019 awards luncheon will take place on Tuesday, December 3, in New York City. The event will honor several extraordinary women who have made a significant impact on the world; one of the honorees is fashion icon and philanthropist Donna Karan, who will receive a Lifetime of Service to Global Health and Healing Award. Karan founded the Urban Zen Foundation in 2007 to provide groundbreaking therapy programs to patients through a combination of Eastern healing practices and Western science. She says, “Urban Zen embodies not just my philanthropic passions, but also my passion for design—dressing and addressing people both on the inside and the outside.” Proceeds from the Women of Vision event will support the David Lynch Foundation’s work providing Transcendental Meditation to under-resourced youth, veterans with PTSD, women survivors of violence, and adults and teens battling substance use disorder.
