Fares is a prominent figure in the entertainment, events and charity industries across the US. He has planned and executed more than 150 events over the span of his career in NYC, Miami, LA, and the Hamptons – with a specialization in charity and cause events. He also spent much of his career managing large scale charity galas in Paris, Milan and London just being a few.
Fares broke into the PR scene 20+ years ago and has worked alongside high society and celebrities in the entertainment and fashion world like Calvin Klein, Luciano Pavarotti, and Mariska Hargitay. After building his network of contacts along his journey, he decided to dedicate his career towards his passion: managing charity events (and attending them), creating partnerships, and building brands he’s worked with.
Fares began helping communities as a young adult. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, he started his own business at the age of 16 in men’s fashion. He attended Central Connecticut State University studying the arts, entertainment, PR, sociology, and psychology. He dedicated his time to aiding those in need in his community of Windsor, CT where he was born and raised before moving onto NYC.
Fares’s mission at Charity Brands is to cultivate and lead a team with an affinity for philanthropy and creative thinking, and his vision is to provide brands with long-term social impact on a universal level spreading good where it’s needed.
