Ana Quincoces is raising money for coronavirus (COVID-19) relief in a truly fabulous way. The Real Housewives of Miami alum has teamed up with an impressive number of ‘Wives from all over the country to raise money for healthcare workers who are currently working on the frontlines of the pandemic. Ana and the rest of the women have donated their reunion dresses for an auction to raise funds.
“I found myself with some free time on my hands, and while organizing my closet, happened upon my RHOM reunion dress,” explained Ana to BravoTV.com. “It dawned on me that many of the ladies from all the different franchises must have dresses that they would be willing to donate.”
From there, Ana reached out to Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Adriana De Moura, who all were eager to help. Soon enough, cast members from various Real Housewives franchises agreed to donate their dresses, as well.
So far, donors include RHOM ladies Ana, Joanna, Karent, Adriana, Marysol Patton and her late mother, Mama Elsa, and Alexia Echevarria. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members Denise Richards, Camille Grammer, Joyce Giraud de Ohoven, Kathryn Edwards, and Eileen Davidson have joined the efforts, as well. Caroline Manzo, Dina Manzo, Danielle Staub and Jennifer Aydin are among The Real Housewives of New Jersey women who have made donations, and The Real Housewives of New York City alum Jill Zarin chipped in, too. Monique Samuels and Karen Huger from The Real Housewives of Potomac are participating, as well as The Real Housewives of Orange County moms Emily Simpson, Heather Dubrow and Lizzie Rovsek.
Andy Cohen also reached out to help, which Ana mentioned “just strengthened my belief that this was a worthwhile endeavor.”
Ana publicly announced her plan on Instagram in an effort to recruit more ‘Wives to pitch in, urging her followers to tag their favorite cast members to bring the fundraiser to their attention.
“Let’s call upon all the ladies of The Real Housewives to donate one of their HW Reunion dresses to be auctioned off to raise much needed funds,” Ana wrote. “These funds would benefit healthcare workers, first responders, and their families. I know the ladies of RHOM and other cities are generous and philanthropic. All differences aside...we are all in this together.”
Ana has decided to donate her green dress from the RHOM Season 2 reunion, and plans to continue to announce more participants as the effort continues to grow across the franchises.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, Ana explained that the auction will most likely occur sometime in April, once all of the dresses arrive.
