Haute Living New York celebrated its October/November issue with cover personality, the Rangers star goalie Henrik Lundqvist (read the exclusive feature here). The dinner, held at Mr. Chow in Tribeca, benefited the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation. The Foundation, founded by Henrik and his wife, Therese in 2014, focuses on education and health care initiatives for both children and adults around the world through fundraising efforts and community outreach. “Some of us get to take things like health, education, and financial stability for granted,” says Lundqvist. “But they’re far from guaranteed for many. The Foundation’s goal is to help people all over the world who face these kinds of challenges.” Since its founding the HLF has grown rapidly with a ten-fold increase in funds raised and has donated $270,000 to charitable causes to date.

At the dinner Lundqvist spoke eloquently about how he became involved in charity in New York, first through Madison Square Garden’s Garden of Dreams Foundation. a children’s charity that works with Madison Square Garden and the MSG network. “I saw what the Rangers were doing with the Garden of Dreams, what my friends were doing outside the sport, helping others,” said Lundqvist. The HLF has an international reach, partnering with community groups in Manhattan like New York Presbyterian Children’s Hospitals, Garden of Dreams Foundation, Together for Better, and Ronald McDonald Barnfond (Children’s Fund). Lundqvist also spoke about the visit that he and Therese made last year to the NYP Children’s Hopsitals when they distributed Christmas gifts that had been collected by one of the HLF Young Ambassadors.

Seth Semilof, co-founder of Haute Living, thanked Henrik for his Haute Living New York cover and for joining the magazine and Tag Heuer for the special evening. In his remarks Killian Muller, president of Tag Heuer North America, praised the Lundqvists charity work and spoke of his admiration for Henrik’s accomplishments both as a world-class athlete and philanthropist. A highlight of the evening was noted artist Bradley Theodore’s presentation of a special painting, based on one of Henrik Lundqvist’s favorite Sports Illustrated photographs. The painting will be auctioned off to benefit the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation, as was a special Grand Prix Racing Weekend in Mexico donated by Tag Heuer. The watch brand also donated the Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Titanium & Silcon Nitride, a luxury timepiece, to benefit the Foundation.
