I know that many of you are hooked on Bravo’s new show, 9 by Design which follows the amazing Cortney and Bob Novogratz of SIXX Design along with their seven beautiful children. The show is really awe-inspiring, not just for the Cortney’s and Bobs incredible design talent and vision, but for their ability to balance their work and family so well.
Family is obviously of the utmost importance to this clan, so tonight’s episode is very special to them and will feature two causes that are near and dear to their hearts. Tonight’s episode “features two fundraising events that are very important to the Novogratz’s. The first is an event that was held at the Novogratz’s home for Jasmina Anema. Jasmina was a ‘spunky 6- year-old’ who lost her battle with Leukemia this past January. Jasmina was a very close friend of the Novogratz family. The Novogratzes would like to help spread Jasmina and Thea’s (Jasmina’s mother) message “to raise leukemia awareness and make people more aware of the need to register to become a bone marrow donor.”
The second event featured on the episode is a benefit for “The City”, an organization that Robert helped create. It is comprised of young athletes from all over New York City. The goal of the fundraiser is to raise money to keep the program running and to start a scholarship fund for high school for the majority of the kids who are of need on the team. Of course, there is sure to be tons of great design on the episode as well! 9 by Design airs tonight at 10/9 pm central on Bravo.
