Our guest will be Deborah Koenigsberger.  Deborah is the founder of Noir et Blanc, a women's clothing boutique in Manhattan featuring fashion-forward yet classic European collections. Since 1989, her focus has been on providing personal attention to New York City's most selective and demanding clients.  In addition to being a successful businesswoman, Deborah has raised more than $1 million for New York City’s homeless mothers and children.  She founded the non-profit organization Hearts of Gold in 1996 as a responsible way for her business to give back to the community.  Hearts of Gold’s mission is to help the women and children at three city shelters by preparing them to exit the shelter system and thrive on their own.  In the past 11 years, Hearts of Gold has helped thousands of homeless families by providing everything from diapers, winter coats, and summer camps for the children; to mammograms, career counseling and landlord negotiations for the mothers.
