NEW YORK – Jozy Altidore will co-host a special evening with international model Adriana Lima and clothing designer Kenneth Cole on Thursday, January 14 in New York.
Altidore, a standout striker playing for the United States Men’s National Team and Toronto FC of Major League Soccer, is partnering with Lima and Cole on another important fundraiser, which will be held at the Garage located in the Hell’s Kitchen section of New York City across from Cole’s clothing-design headquarters. The event will honor Madame Marie Fenestor, director of nursing at St. Luke’s Hospital in Haiti. The night begins with two VIP receptions, the first starting at 5:30 p.m. EST, followed by the main celebration commencing at 7:30 p.m. EST at the Garage.
This important event will highlight Fenestor’s accomplishments with the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti foundation and hospital, as well as generate awareness, funding and display continued support of the successful organization.
“I am truly excited to partner with Adriana and Kenneth again for this wonderful night of celebration,” Altidore said. “As a son of Haitian immigrants, the country has always been dear to me. I am always looking for opportunities to give back to the children and people of the island nation. Honoring Madame Fenestor and generating more awareness for the St. Luke Foundation is going to be a fantastic opportunity for myself, Adriana and Kenneth.”
On the field, Altidore has put together a solid, decorated career at both the club and international levels. He currently sits alone at fourth on the all-time U.S. list for goals scored (31) in 89 career appearances with the national team, which he has twice represented at the FIFA World Cup.
Altidore, who signed with MLS club Toronto FC in January before a stint with Sunderland of the Barclays Premier League in England, is the only American player to score 30 goals or more in a single European league season in soccer history, finishing with 31 goals in 40 matches across all competitions with AZ Alkmaar during the 2012-2013 campaign.

NEW YORK – International soccer star Jozy Altidore will host a special autograph-signing/meet-and-greet session June 27 at Upper 90 Soccer in New York City to raise funds for the Jozy Altidore Foundation.
Altidore, one of the world’s top strikers playing for the United States Men’s National Team and Dutch professional club AZ Alkmaar, will be at Upper 90, New York’s premier soccer store located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for this rare appearance.
Altidore will be raising money for his foundation, which was started in 2011. The mission of the foundation is to help children across the world any way it can. The foundation fosters educational/recreational learning and excellence by working with communities near and far, athletes and educators to provide children with various avenues of growth and success beneficial for their future.
“This is definitely an event I’ve been looking forward to since we put it together,” Altidore said. “I love coming to New York City and having a chance to meet the fans is always something I enjoy doing since events like this don’t happen often.”
Persons interested in attending the event can bring items they’d like to have signed by Altidore or they can purchase an array of items available at Upper 90 to be autographed. There will be a recommended donation price for various items to be signed such as balls, jerseys, photos and cleats. All proceeds from the event will go toward the Jozy Altidore Foundation.
Altidore put together a record-setting campaign in the Netherlands this past season. He became the first American player to score 30 goals or more in a single European league season in soccer history, finishing with 31 goals in 40 matches across all competitions.
Perhaps his biggest goal of Altidore’s season came on May 9 when he recorded the game winner in a stunning 2-1 victory against heavily favored PSV Eindhoven in the KNVB Dutch Cup championship at De Kuip Stadion in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It was the first Dutch Cup title since 1982 for the Cheese Farmers, who also earned an automatic berth in next season’s Europa League with the triumph.
Most recently, Altidore was at the top of his game, scoring in four consecutive matches – including three World Cup qualifying games – with the United States. Altidore recorded the game winner in Tuesday’s 1-0 victory against Honduras in a World Cup qualifier at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.
All media outlets are invited to attend. Altidore will be available for interviews throughout the event. For more information about Upper 90 Soccer, please log on at www.u90soccer.com.
