Dining with Two Ten

Two Ten Footwear Foundation’s annual dinner, held last Wednesday at New York’s Marriott Marquis, drew more than 1,000 people and raised a record $1.3 million for the organization. Big industry names, including Kenneth Cole, Steve Madden, Debbie Ferrée, Carol Baiocchi, Diane Sullivan and Danny Schwartz, paid tribute to the charity’s 70th anniversary by reminiscing about key historical moments through the decades.

But the night truly belonged to man of the hour, Bob Campbell, who received the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award, which will bear his name. Tim O’Donovan gave touching remarks about Campbell before introducing Upper Echelon Shoes co-founder Seth Campbell, who presented his father with the award and thanked him for being a strong mentor over the years.
