About Renée Manning

Ever tasted the most tender, barbecued ribs you’ve ever had with an incredibly savory sauce? If you haven’t then you’re in for a treat.
Known for her “dirty dog blues”, Manning has played various venues from New York City to Hong Kong. She has been coupled with jazz legends such as the late Dizzy Gillespie, David “Fathead” Newman, Nat Adderley, Lester Bowie and countless others.
Renée’s most recent offering, All Grown Up, showcases her quiet set and has an ambiance of a warm fireplace coupled with a nice glass of wine. Full bio available upon request.

About The New York Cares Coat Drive

Thousands of New Yorkers will be forced to make a choice this winter between buying a warm coat and putting food on the table, heating their homes, or meeting other basic survival needs. That’s why for the last 23 years, New York Cares has collected new and gently used winter coats each holiday season and distributed them to thousands of men, women, and children who would otherwise go cold.

The New York Cares Coat Drive is one of New York City’s largest and most cherished philanthropic traditions, providing local residents a way to meaningfully support their community during the holiday season.

• Who receives coats? Homeless men, women, and children, the working poor, and at-risk senior citizens from our partner nonprofit agencies and schools.

• How many coats have been distributed? We’ve handed out about 1.5 million coats to local residents in need over the last 23 years.

• Who donates? As many as 65,000 caring New Yorkers donate coats annually. We also appeal to manufacturers and retailers to make bulk donations directly to New York Cares to help us meet the unprecedented need for coats.

• How is it funded? Coats are the lifeblood of the New York Cares Coat Drive, but money allows it to flow. New York Cares relies on financial donations to fund this considerable philanthropic initiative.
