Housing Works is an organization the gives housing and legal support to some of the most underserved New Yorkers — those homeless and living with HIV/AIDS. I’ve been a board member for the past couple of years, and part of my role as a board member is to bring awareness to the organization. So, I’m excited to announce the second annual Labor of Love event to support Housing Works at my home in East Hampton, and I’d love for some TPG readers to come.
