The first-of-it's-kind philanthropic event held last night in NYC had a fundraising goal of $300,000, which will benefit an AIDS charity of choice for 2013. The goal was set to raise awareness surrounding the staggering number of people infected with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. (an estimated 300,000+).
The couture pieces worn by the reality stars will be auctioned off in weeks following the show to also benefit the 2013 AIDS Charity of Choice.
